ANNUAL MARINE COMMUNITY DAY PLANNED

The Ninth U.S. Coast Guard District will hold its annual Marine Community
Day conference January 30 and 31 in at the Sheraton Cleveland City Centre in
Cleveland.

The theme for the conference is "The New Normal: Post 9/11" and this year,
for the first time, it will be extended from one day to a day and a half.
This event brings together U.S. Coast Guard district personnel and members
of the Great Lakes/St. Lawrence Seaway marine community for dialogue on a
broad range of issues.

Discussion topics will include the Marine Transportation System initiative
at the federal level, maritime security in the Great Lakes in the
post-September 11 environment, navigation and charting technologies such as
the new Automatic Identification System (AIS) being introduced in the Great
Lakes/Seaway system, environmental issues and dredging.

Invited as the lunchtime keynote speaker is U.S. Secretary of Transportation
Norman Mineta. Also featured in a special panel on port security will be
Rear Admiral Richard Larabee, director of port commerce for the New York/New
Jersey Port Authority, and H. Van Link, chief superintendent of seaport
police for the Port of Rotterdam.

New this year is a special, industry-sponsored banquet called the Admiral's
Dinner to be held on the evening of January 30. Keynote speaker for the
dinner is James Hartung, president of the Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority
and chair of the U.S. delegation for the American Association of Port
Authorities. Master of ceremonies will be Davis Helberg, executive director
of the Duluth Seaway Port Authority.
