      Network and connect with Maritime Professional
      Ahoy Members and Friends,
      I accepted the invitation to join Maritime Professional and I am a member of two of its groups. You might be interested as well.
      It is a new network website and will have a lot of catching up to come close to gCaptain.com. Still its software is awesome: blogs, news, forums, and groups. Reminds me of Facebook but without the frustrations I continue to find with that network.
      It seems to update the news section by the minute. Here are a couple of items:

      Tom Crowley Receives NDTA Award

      Tom Crowley, Jr., chairman, president and CEO of Crowley Maritime Corporation, was presented with the prestigious National Transportation Award from the National Defense Transportation Association,
      On Sept. 30, Coast Guard Sector Portland, Ore. reported that it is monitoring and managing vessel traffic on the Columbia River east of Portland/Vancouver, Wash.
      Here are three recent blog postings:

      Are Profits "Blowin' in the Wind"

      Offshore wind energy business is projected to grow mightily to 2013

      Is the cost of attending worth the networking opportunity at industry trade fairs?

      Is the cost of attending worth the networking opportunity at industry trade fairs?
      Before things got a bit squeezy, people went to trade exhibitions without really considering the cost, but is it really worth it now?

      I gave a pitch for the Navy League and our council on my profile page, http://maritimeprofessional.com/Members/Hobart.aspx/Phelps-Hobart. I will be posting our December 21 luncheon invitation.
      Speaking of joining, I rejoined the San Francisco Maritime National Park Association. It seems to be going through a metamorphosis. Exciting things continue to happen at the Park and the Association is right there and involved. We will have an event or two there, at least announce an event or two and encourage attendance as a group. Please let me know if you have been active - like a board member or volunteer - with the Association. You may recall we had a representative of the Park as our guest speaker at our March 16 luncheon on the O'BRIEN. Sea Scouts activities on the Hyde Street Pier, remember?
      Heave Ho!
