The Group of 69



DigiMariner VII

September 30, 2022 10:30 AM ET on Maritime TV


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 live virtual DIGIMARINER ‘mini-conferences’, six of which have been produced.
The first DIGIMARINER conference was dedicated to Maritime Transportation and took place on November 18, 2020 .

The DIGIMARINER II conference was dedicated to Marine Engineering and took place February 26, 2021

The DIGIMARINER III conference took place on April 20,2021 and can be viewed here.

The DigiMariner IV Conference took place on September 24, 2021 and can be viewed here.

The DigiMariner V Conference took place on January 13, 2022 and can be viewed here.

The most recent live virtual DigiMariner VI Earth Day Edition Conference took place on April 22, 2022 and can be viewed here.

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.

Please note that sponsorship and presenter positions are still available for the archive of all four prior DigiMariner Conferences.
Sponsors will be pre-recorded in a video interview for later archiving on the DigiMariner conference webcast site(s) and provided a copy of the video interview for their own unlimited use. For more information on becoming a sponsor or a presenter for the series, please contact us at [email protected] or call (703) 961-9250 Ext. 221
