Thank you for stopping by our booth! We hope to see you again at next years event! 

The maritime industry faces continual regulatory change as it strives to reduce its impact on the marine environment.  NAMEPA members, in particular, are committed to “Save our Seas”, but this approach is not without its hurdles.  Complex regulations require support to insure understanding and competence and to devise an appropriate strategy for each company.

Join your industry peers at a program entitled “Pathways to Sustainability”, which is designed to be a guide for navigating through the myriad of regulations leading to compliance.
