Awards Dinner: 1800-2130
The next decade will contain unprecedented challenges for the maritime industry as demands for decarbonization mount. How will industry overcome these challenges while still operating in an unfavorable earnings environment? Of the myriad of options available to industry, which will bubble to the top? Join industry thought leaders and solution providers as we address these challenges- and opportunities- together!
To guide the discussion, NAMEPA is dedicating this year’s annual conference to “Facing the Decade of Decarbonization” which will explore the myriad of ways that industry is approaching the challenge of reducing its contribution of GHGs in the face of societal demand. Kicking off the conference will be newly appointed RDML Richard Timme, Assistant Commandant for Prevention Policy.
Following the conference will be a brief NAMEPA Annual General Meeting before the NAMEPA Annual Awards Reception and Dinner, recognizing the achievements of individuals and corporations who “Save Our Seas”.
We are looking forward to seeing you on October 24th aboard the Hornblower Infinity in New York.
