T

he AAPA Spring Conference in Washington, D.C.,
(April 4-6) featured a keynote address by U.S.
Secretary of Transportation Elaine L. Chao, the
presentation of AAPA's 2017 Port Person of the Year
award to House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) and the
presentation of one of AAPA's two 2017 Cruise Awards to Royal
Caribbean Cruise Lines President & COO Adam Goldstein.
Also presenting at the conference were House Transportation
and Infrastructure Subcommittee on Water Resources and
Environment Chairman Garret Graves (R-La.) and Senator Tom
Carper (D-DE), Ranking Member on the Senate Environment
and Public Works Committee.
Other aspects of the conference included a session titled The
Politics of Trade and Pressures on the Supply Chain that featured Bill Lane, former director of global government affairs for
Caterpillar Inc., and Andrew Penfold, global maritime director
for WSP|Parsons Brinckerhoff in London. Two panels, comprised
of seven port CEOs and senior level port executives, highlighted
"Success Stories in Port Planning and Development." In addition,
the program featured a special session on using technology to stake
out a leadership position in the port industry.
Tuesday, April 4, marked Western Hemisphere Ports Day - the
annual recognition of the unity, importance and value of seaports
throughout the Americas. Several AAPA technical and policy
committees met, and the AAPA Board of Directors elected Steve
Cernak, chief executive and port director for Port Everglades, to
serve as the association's chairman of the board for the 2017-18
activity year that begins in October.
The final day of this year's Spring Conference was punctuated by
nine meetings of U.S. port representatives with key Congressional
and Administration leaders and staff officials to advocate for U.S.
port policy and funding issues.
