If you live or work in the New York metro area you might want to consider attending today's Connecticut Maritime Time Association luncheon. The guest speaker is James Christodoulou, CEO of Industrial Shipping Enterprise Corporation. He's the guy you saw on television as the piracy expert during the Maersk Alabama incident. Why is he an expert in piracy? Perhaps because Mr. Christodoulou successfully negotiated the release of the M/V Biscaglia. His topic is the human, operational, and financial impact of piracy. It should be an interesting talk.
What? Your not a member of the CMA! Membership (link to pdf) is inexpensive and the networking is priceless (disclaimer- Amver is a member). You can rub elbows with some amazing people at CMA events.
The CMA is taking the luncheon on the road in June to Washington, DC on June 4th at the Army and Navy Club and then back to Connecticut on June 18th where Rear Admiral Allen Worley, Superintendant of the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy is the scheduled speaker.
What's your best CMA story?
