NAMEPA's Annual Seminar and Awards Dinner

2016 NAMEPA Annual Conference Focuses on Critical Link Between Shipping and Society

New York, NY - October 27

The World Maritime Day theme for 2016 is "Shipping: Indispensable to the world".  The theme was chosen to focus on the critical link between shipping and global society; without shipping the import and export of goods on the scale necessary to sustain the modern world would not be possible.  Seaborne trade continues to expand, bringing benefits for consumers across the world through competitive freight costs. 

But we, the industry, know this; the challenge comes in educating the public about this globally vital industry.  How do we get beyond wringing our hands in frustration and move forward on this initiative?

Industry colleagues, regulators, conservationists and educators broadened the discussion on how to communicate the value proposition of the marine industry to the public.  What is the message, what are the instruments we need, and how do we deploy them?  How does this benefit your company, your bottom line, and the industry at large?

The 30th Anniversary of the International Coastal Cleanup

In partnership with volunteer organizations and individuals around the globe, Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup engages people to remove trash from the world’s beaches and waterways, identify the sources of debris and change the behaviors.

"NAMEPA, working with our partner the New England Science and Sailing Foundation (NESS), performed a beach clean on September 17th, International Coastal Cleanup Day in Westerly, RI.

Walking along the beach it seemed as though we’d been done with our clean up very quickly and with very little to clean up, but with 31 volunteers we collected almost 21 pounds of garbage after just 20 minutes!  Much of the debris was found by the closed for the season concession building but there were still many items  found in the sand and near the water.  We input our data into the Ocean Conservancy’s CleanSwell app that can be downloaded onto smartphones from the iTunes store for free. 

Although September 17th is the official “International Coastal Cleanup Day”, NAMEPA is working with other groups to schedule more beach and streamside clean ups through October.  Almost 75% of plastics in the ocean comes from land-based sources - that’s you and me!  Let’s work together to prevent this by reducing our use of plastics, recycling them when we do, and participating in clean ups whenever we can."

If you are interested in starting your own beach cleanup with NAMEPA’s help please reach out to M.Hogue@namepa.net

This highly specialized seminar is the result of the combination of the “Trading in U.S. Waters” and “Ensuring a Culture of Environmental Compliance” Seminars, designed to assist the local shipping community and maritime stakeholders to acquire a fully integrated approach to U.S. requirements for vessels visiting US ports.

The Seminar is organized under the Auspices of the Embassy of the United States of America in Athens, by the American-Hellenic Chamber of Commerce and the North American Marine Environment Protection Association (NAMEPA), in full cooperation with the Commercial Section of the U.S. Embassy in Athens and the Int’l Propeller Club of the United States, Int’l Port of Piraeus.

This informational event will explore the regulatory challenges and opportunities presented when trading ships to the United States. Regulations and their enforcement will be partnered with shipowner experience and various compliance strategies. The United States presents some unique challenges which will be addressed during this seminar.

National Maritime Day/ Safety at Sea Seminar and AMVER Awards Dinner - Washington, DC

2016 National Maritime Day Seminar-Safety at Sea
Geoffrey R. Cooper, Master of Environmental Management Candidate, Duke University

On May 23, in celebration of National Maritime Day, NAMEPA convened a gathering of government officials, industry leaders, and nonprofit advocates at the National Press Club in Washington, DC. The loss of the El Faro and its 33 crew members was a haunting reminder to all participants of how sacred life is and how important the seminar topic—safety at sea—is to the maritime industry.

The regulatory update from RDML Paul Thomas of the U.S. Coast Guard highlighted the ongoing debate over the competitiveness of the U.S.-flag privately-owned fleet, the failures leading up the loss of the El Faro, the implementation challenge of Subchapter M for the Coast Guard, the IMO approval of draft interim guidelines on cyber risk-management strategies, and the increased attention on environmental issues like ballast water discharge and vessel emission levels. Regulatory burden and uncertainty was a theme throughout the event and speakers stressed the need for smart regulations. While the vast majority of the maritime industry operates above and beyond compliance standards, there is a small minority of offenders that act in a negative way that forces increased regulations. But the frustration from the industry towards regulation is due to the conflict caused by varying levels of governance starting from international standards down to specific port requirements. Caught in the middle of these conflicts is the seafarer, and it is the seafarer that must be at the considered throughout the regulatory process.  Reverend Marsh Drege of the Seafarer’s International House said it clear and simple when he said, “We all care about the seafarer.”

This is a time of enormous progress, and with that progress undoubtedly comes increased regulation. The goal of every ship owner is to move cargo from Port A to Port B, and regulations need to create a system that enables this goal to be reached in a safe, secure, and sustainable way that takes into account the realities of doing business. Captain Jack Hearn of the American Professional Mariners Association relayed the advice to “be careful, be ready, and be safe.”

The U.S. maritime industry is at a tipping point. From January, 2012 to May, 2016, the U.S.-flag privately-owned fleet declined 27% to a near record-low 79 vessels. Not only does this translate to a loss in 2,400 jobs, but barring any drastic changes, the number of vessels, crumbling infrastructure, and the decline in the number of mariners threatens the ability for the U.S. to project our troops anywhere in the world and sustain any type of serious military engagement. But Maritime Administrator Paul “Chip” Jaenichen reminded the crowd that the American story began as a maritime story. So much of our history, culture and prosperity is because of the maritime industry, but now is the time to make the right decisions and act to insure the long-term future of the maritime industry.

Following the Safety at Sea Seminar, NAMEPA hosted the annual Amver Awards Ceremony also at the National Press Club. Amver, a program sponsored by the United States Coast Guard, is a computer-based voluntary global ship reporting system used worldwide to by search and rescue authorities to arrange for assistance to persons in distress at sea. 922 U.S. managed ships earned AMVER awards in 2015 and more than 70 people gathered to celebrate their commitment to safety at sea and honor the Captains and crews of these vessels. U.S. Coast Guard Commandant Admiral Paul Zukunft gave the keynote remarks speaking about the tradition of mariners helping those in distress at sea and encouraging vessels owners to continue to participate in the program, noting how vital it will likely be in areas newly opened to navigation such as the Arctic. AMVER Director Benjamin Strong and the Commandant then personally presented the Amver awards to vessels with representatives present at the ceremony, thanking and congratulating each recipient for their commitment to safety at sea.
