AAPA's Professional Port Manager (PPM®) program is now open to applications for admission to the Class of 2021.

To be eligible for consideration, an applicant must be a full-time employee of an AAPA member public port authority, port agency or a maritime related organization that has risen to an appropriate level within the organization. At a minimum, the candidate must have had management responsibilities for at least five years prior to the date of enrollment in the PPM® program.

The application process requires the submission, preferably in electronic format, of a completed application form, letter of endorsement or sponsorship from the candidate’s chief executive officer, a current curriculum vita, a current job description, and an essay describing the candidate’s unique qualifications for the program to AAPA headquarters no later than February 1, 2017.  

The AAPA Curriculum Committee will evaluate the applicants and select candidates for the program. Class size may be limited at the committee’s discretion. Applications that are incomplete or lacking the required documentation will not be considered.  

The Class of 2021 will convene for the first time at the AAPA Executive Management Conference, May 1-5, 2017, in Tampa (FL).
