Maritime Association Installs New Officers And Directors

The Maritime Association of the Port of New York/New Jersey recently installed its newly elected officers and directors. Hans K.

Schaefer, president of Todd Shipyards Corporation, has been elected the new vice president, replacing John H. Griffith, chairman of Norton, Lilly International, Inc.

Bruce A. McAllister remains as president of the association, and Paul Preus, president of Clean Water, Inc., as treasurer.

New directors installed for threeyear terms were: Gilbert H. Dunham, senior vice president, Johnson & Higgins; James A. Johnson, president, Steamco Corporation; Brian A. McAllister, president, McAllister Brothers, Inc,; Robert E. Negron, president, Electro-Nav, Inc,; John L. Sullivan Jr., president, Smit International (Americas) Inc.; Kenneth H. Warner, president, Northeast Marine Pilots/ Sound Pilots.

Founded in 1873 as The Maritime Association of the Port of New York, the name was changed recently to include New Jersey, to more accurately reflect the bi-state nature of the port and the geographic range of its members. From its headquarters in lower Manhattan, the Association operates a 24-hour Marine Intelligence Center to monitor ship arrivals and departures.

The Maritime Association represents its members at all levels of government, and various committees work to maintain safe and efficient movement of vessels and cargo in port. Another important role is the sponsorship of conferences and exhibitions that focus worldwide attention on the port and member activities. The Association is also a driving force for industry involvement in the Statue of Liberty/Ellis Island restoration project, as well as Operation Sail 1986.
