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.
 
FusionCharts
The CMA was created as a self-help group 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 2003, the CMA celebrated its twentieth anniversary. It prospers with over 1,300 members representing nearly 450 companies and organizations.

PRESIDENT'S NOTES

In the last Newsletter I wrote about our Maritime Community, in between then and now we have had our annual CMA Conference, titled "speed".

We welcomed upward of 2500 visitors from around the Globe, and our local members benefited greatly, with numerous receptions (or rather parties!) being held in and around Stamford, so much so that hotel rooms were hard to come by and in nearly every restaurant and bar maritime industry members could be found entertaining their guests.

From the most senior to the most junior and also those looking to become a part of our industry, the feedback from attendees has been universally extremely positive. The sense of community was pervasive; universally fascinating and relevant subjects, delivered by those at the top of their profession, held audiences riveted - from the first keynote speeches on Tuesday morning to Wednesday's Gala Dinner Roast by Richard du Moulin and the verbal sparring between the incoming Commodore Robert Bugbee and the outgoing Commodore Peter Evensen - I believe that you could have heard a pin drop.

This was no platitudinous Conference, decision makers mingled with policy makers, differences were aired and discussed, actual decisions made and very relevant subjects were presented with attendees benefitting greatly from the knowledge of experts. Relationships were refreshed, renewed and grown.

The CMA Conference, once again, proved its metal.

Ian Workman
President
