PMAC 22nd AGM: Attendance record broken

When Broward County Vice Mayor Dale Holness officially welcomed delegates attending the 22nd Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Port Management Association of the Caribbean on June 26, it was already the largest such gathering in the history of the Association, registering 141 delegates for the three-day event.

The record-breaking 2019 AGM was hosted by PMAC Associate Member, Business Supply Source (BSS) in association with Vice Mayor Holness, and was held at the Westin Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort, Florida, USA.
Representatives of 18 of PMAC’s 19 member ports accounted for a significant segment of the audience at the opening ceremony. The south Florida shipping community was also well represented as were PMAC associates and strategic partner organizations, including the American Association of Ports Authorities (AAPA), the Association of Caribbean States, the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS), the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA), the Inter-American Committee on Ports – Organization of American States, and the Caribbean Marine Environment Protection Association.

The PMAC 22nd AGM in south Florida was significant for several reasons other than attendance. Three entities with which PMAC currently has formal relationships signed updated Memoranda of Understanding, and Associate Member, the Caribbean Maritime University entered into a partnership with Port Member, Grand Port Maritime de la Guyane (GPM-Guyane), for the creation of an inter-port economic observatory from the Guiana Shield to the Caribbean.
Participants attending the opening session of the 2019 AGM also witnessed the launch of Volume 1 Issue 2 of the Caribbean Maritime University’s International Journal of Maritime Themes and its presentation by CMU President, Professor Fritz Pinnock.

A notable feature of the event’s Strategic Session was the interaction of Carnival Corporation & PLC with members of the PMAC port member delegations, during which informative presentations were made by VP Global Ports and Caribbean Government Relations, Marie McKenzie and David Candib, VP Development and Operations, Global Port and Destination Development Group.
PMAC used the opportunity of the 22nd AGM to acknowledge the work of AAPA CEO, Kurt Nagle and his contribution and support in establishing formal relationships between the AAPA and PMAC.
The 23rd annual general meeting of PMAC will be hosted on June 2020 by the Port Authority of the Turks and Caicos Islands.
