The Connecticut Maritime Association is a non-profit organization which was built by its members, for its members, and as such is one of kind.
Unlike many similar organizations which are supported largely by corporate membership, the CMA’s voting membership is comprised only of individuals. From bunker brokers and tug-boat operators to lawyers and underwriters, to ship owners, brokers and managers, shippers and merchants of all kinds of cargo, each CMA member has an equal and separate vote.
The CMA was created to build a community of shipping people, and remains a conduit for the exchange of information and a source of camaraderie and fellowship that is unique and vital to the shipping community. In 2014, the CMA celebrated its thirtieth anniversary. It prospers with over 1,500 members representing nearly 500 companies and organizations.
President’s Notes – November 2020
For the first time in a while, this is a fun newsletter to write as we enjoy a not so small victory of celebrating the coronation of Lois Zabrocky as our latest Commodore. The success of the show did not happen on its own, but rather it was a combination of hard work from the CMA board, our partners at INFORMA and countless other people, including many of our previous CMA Commodores. I especially want to thank Robert Bugbee, John Hadjipateras, Jack Noonan, Paddy Rodgers and Richard du Moulin for joining us during the Commodores debate. Finally, none of that would have happened if not for the hard work of Jim Lawrence who is still lending a hand behind the scenes.
Although the highlight of the tradeshow year in and year out is the socializing and camaraderie that goes along with it, one of the key features that makes this event unique is the timely content delivered by top notch experts.
