National Maritime Day- Live Virtual Celebration!
May 20, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am CDT
Happy National Maritime Day!
Join IRPT as we celebrate YOU at the virtual National Maritime Day ceremony Thursday, May 20 at 9:00 A.M. CDT at YouTube.com/c/MaritimeAdministration1950
IRPT would like to thank every port worker, terminal worker, all of the Nation’s boat captains, deck crews, our barge lines, and every American working in the Maritime industry.
YOU help power our Nation’s economy;
YOU contribute to each of your communities overall economic health;
YOU help strengthen trade within the United States and around the world.
America’s supply chain depends on every maritime worker, from the top executives, to our office support team members, to those working in the elements out on the docks and on our rivers.
YOU are essential!
This year’s theme – “America’s Maritime Workforce: Connecting the Nation and the World,” — reflects the U.S. maritime industry’s unwavering support of the nation, especially during the current challenge of COVID-19. While we may not be able to join in person, we can honor our nation’s maritime heritage, weather this current storm together, and commit ourselves to an even stronger future for America’s maritime industry. —MARAD
