Congratulations to the Association of Canadian Port Authorities for a successful 60th anniversary conference in St. John, NB last week. The theme was "Building for the Future" and the association did a wonderful job pulling together thought-leaders from around the globe to talk about everything from technology to automation. AAPA staff were in attendance and several AAPA members, including Mark McAndrews, port director of the Port of Pascagoula, and Christopher Cooley, director of environmental affairs from Port Tampa Bay, spoke on a panel titled "Best Practices in Building a Sustainable Future." We look forward to our continued collaboration
