Port Person of the Year Nominations
AAPA corporate members are invited to nominate individuals for consideration as AAPA's 2018 Port Person(s) of the Year. The deadline for nominations is Friday, December 8, 2017. Depending on the individual or individuals selected, the award(s) may be presented either at the 2018 Spring Conference, March 20-21, in Washington, DC or during the AAPA Annual Convention, October 21-24, hosted by the Port of Valparaiso.
One or more awards are made in recognition of individuals whose outstanding work has made a significant contribution to public ports and/or maritime commerce either internationally or within a country or region. Generally, nominees are not members of the public port community itself, but friends and allies (active members of the Association are not eligible). The formal criteria for eligibility and judging are available on AAPA’s website (scroll to the bottom of the page).
AAPA corporate members may nominate an individual for this award. Please provide at least one paragraph on each of the three judging criteria listed. Nominations should be submitted to Jean Godwin at AAPA Headquarters (703-684-5700) no later than Friday, December 8, 2017. If you wish, you may e-mail your nomination to her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Selection of those receiving the honor for 2018 will be made by the AAPA Executive Committee at its winter meeting in January.
