Puget Sound Maritime Achievement Award

The 2012 Puget Sound Maritime Achievement Award Selection Committee is accepting nominations for this year’s award to be announced at the Seattle Propeller Club’s June luncheon.

Nominations must be received by April 30, 2012 and may be e-mailed to rberkowitz@trans-inst.org. Nominations should include specific achievements of the candidate, particularly those impacting the Puget Sound maritime community, and a brief biography of the nominee. Industry segments represented by past recipients include steamship lines and agents, tug and barge operators, marine architects, passenger and fishing vessel operators, port authorities, stevedores, labor, and government. Several paragraphs about the nominee are sufficient.

Also, we will be accepting nominations for the recipient of the Seattle Propeller Club’s Public Official of the Year Award. Each year the Seattle Propeller Club recognizes a local elected or public official whose outstanding work or service has made a significant contribution to maritime commerce in the Pacific Northwest.

Feel free to contact Rich Berkowitz at (206) 443-1738 with any questions about either award nomination.
