Port of Kalama Harbor Master Sean Clark has been elected president of the Northwest Marine Terminal Association. Clark will lead the association in its mission to exchange best practices among deep water ports in the Pacific Northwest.
Clark, who is also responsible for facility security and safety at the Port of Kalama, has represented the Port on the association for four years. The Northwest Marine Terminal Association is a voluntary organization of 15 deepwater ports in Oregon and Washington and has operated since 1939 under agreement approved by the Federal Maritime Commission. In his leadership role and under provisions of the agreement, Clark will help the association facilitate long range industry planning with respect to a broad range of factors such as setting uniform rates, establishing consistent rules and practices, exchanging relevant information, and pursuing cooperative ventures.
“It is an honor for me to represent the Port of Kalama as the association president this year,” says Clark. “I look forward to facilitating discussions and activity regarding best practices among our members in addition to maintaining marine terminal rates, regulations and rules that impact all of us in the maritime industry.”
