It was a good day for New York City’s most famous groundhog, Staten Island Chuck.  Groundhog Day, 2012 proved to be an even better day for the more than 150 men and women from the international shipping community, along with hundreds of SUNY Maritime College students, who  attended the 2012 SUNY Maritime College Cutting-Edge Issues in Shipping held on the SUNY Maritime College campus in Throggs Neck, the Bronx, New York City.
