"Safety at Sea" National Maritime Day Seminar and AMVER Awards

On-Demand Webcast

Tuesday, May 22, 2018 - 2:00 PM 7:30 PM
National Press Club 529 14th Street NW, 13th Floor Washington, DC

This seminar is designed to bring industry and governmental leaders together to discuss concerns about safety and strategies for meeting them in a rapidly changing shipping environment.

  • What are the primary risks facing mariners today?
  • What are the implications of increasing automation?
  • How about training?
  • Are crews overburdened?

We celebrate National Maritime Day by reflecting on the role the maritime industry plays economically and globally.

The cocktail reception for the participants of AMVER, which celebrates its 60th anniversary this year, honors merchant ships that volunteer to be available for maritime emergency response.

Special Invited Guest:  Vice Adm. Karl L. Schultz, incoming Commandant of the U.S. Coast Guard
