A dedicated team of alumni, led by the USMMA Class Of ’69 and known as the "Group of 69”, has initiated an opportunity for all alumni and industry thought leaders to positively impact the Academy and the entire US Merchant Marine community by proactively developing maritime digital technology education for dissemination within the Kings Point curriculum in preparation for the 4th Industrial Revolution. This is a call-to-action for every Kings Point alumnus and maritime professional who plays a role in the evolving digitalization of shipping or is involved within an operating maritime organization which has digital competencies, to participate in this initiative. The group has enlisted and are working with the USMMA Academic Dean and faculty to implement this program. To launch this effort, the group is working with Maritime TV to produce two virtual ‘mini-conferences’, one dedicated to Maritime Transportation (November 18, 2020) and another dedicated to Marine Engineering (Date TBD, early 2021). The Group of ’69 is inviting those interested in participating to be industry presenters and sponsors to facilitate this initiative with these first two mini-conferences. The initial goal is to create an accessible video repository database of educational knowledge regarding the many facets of the digitalization of the shipping for USMMA midshipmen, and eventually all maritime educational institutions and industry professionals. The agenda for the first mini conference on Maritime Transportation, which is continually evolving and being updated, is as follows. AGENDA 10:00AM -11:30 PM Presentations from technology executives of shipping and maritime operating companies, along with the technology solutions providers who serve them. 11:30 AM – 12:30 PM Break for lunch and networking in individual virtual breakout rooms with each presenter. 12:30 PM – 2:00 PM Presentations from technology executives of ports and shipyards along with the technology solutions providers who serve them. 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM Break for networking in individual virtual breakout rooms with each presenter. 3:00 PM – 4:30 PM Presentations from industry associations, classification societies and government agencies on the advocacy and regulatory activities surrounding the digitalization of shipping.
