Monika Wegener of M. Wegener & Associates is the recipient of the 4th annual Gary L. Gregory* Lifetime Achievement Award. Ms. Wegener will be honored during a special reception held on February 19th, 2014 in the California State Capitol Rotunda for the attendees of the 2014 California Maritime Leadership Symposium.
Each year the Symposium organizing committee recognizes an individual who has exemplified a strong commitment to California’s maritime transportation industry throughout the course of a distinguished career. Through her past work with the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce, the Marine Exchange of Southern California, the Office of International Trade for the State of California and her continuing affiliation with the Propeller Club, Port of Los Angeles-Long Beach, the Harbor Association of Industry & Commerce and the Los Angeles Customs Brokers & Freight Forwarders Association, Monika Wegener’s career has positively impacted various sectors within the state’s maritime industry. Ms. Wegener was the first female member of the Propeller Club of Los Angeles-Long Beach, as well as the first female to be honored at the International Seafarers Center Industry Salute. “I am honored and humbled to follow in the footsteps of Gary Gregory, Dick Steinke and Captain Dick McKenna in receiving this award ” remarked Ms. Wegener. “And, it has always been my great pleasure to work in this industry.”
As part of the Symposium’s annual tradition, Monika Wegener will be formally honored during a special reception held in the Capitol Building Rotunda on the first evening of the two-day conference among an audience of industry peers, including policy makers, port executives, maritime industry leaders and transportation planners.
The Symposium has become one of the premier events focused on briefing Sacramento's policymakers on key matters related to the entire Maritime Transportation System. It is the only comprehensive forum for port executives, commissioners and other stakeholders across the state to seek resolution to the growing challenges the Maritime Transportation System faces.

Each year, the California Maritime Leadership recognizes the outstanding efforts of both individuals and organizations within the maritime industry. The organizing committee of the 2014 Symposium recently announced the Port of San Francisco as the 2014 Honoree of Merit. The Port will be honored during a special reception held on February 19th, 2014 in the California State Capitol Building Rotunda for the attendees of the 2014 California Maritime Leadership Symposium.
The Symposium Honoree of Merit Award is bestowed upon an individual or organization that has made a significant and demonstrable contribution to the Maritime Transportation System in the state of California. As the 2014 Honoree, The Port of San Francisco will be recognized during its 150th anniversary and acknowledged for its support of maritime commerce and operations, navigation, fisheries, environmental and historical preservation, and providing public recreation opportunities for the San Francisco area.
“The Port of San Francisco is extremely honored to be named the recipient of the 2014 Merit Award by the California Maritime Leadership Symposium,” said Port Executive Director Monique Moyer. “This prestigious award from our peers in the Maritime community -- during the Port’s 150th anniversary period, makes it especially rewarding. The Port’s long history of maritime tradition and commitment to maintaining maritime industries, waterborne transportation and good jobs on San Francisco’s waterfront remains among our highest priorities. We wholeheartedly thank the Symposium for this very distinguished award.”
As part of the Symposium’s annual tradition, the Port of San Francisco will be formally honored during a special reception at the 14th Annual California Maritime Leadership Symposium among an audience of peers, including policy makers, port executives, maritime industry leaders and transportation planners.
The Symposium has become one of the premier events focused on briefing Sacramento's policymakers on key matters related to the entire Maritime Transportation System. It is the only comprehensive forum for port executives, commissioners and other stakeholders across the state to seek resolution to the growing challenges the Maritime Transportation System faces. The CMLS is hosted by a broad-based Coalition. For more information, a program overview, and to register, please visit the Symposium webpage: http://maritimesymposium.com
