2020 marks the 10th anniversary of the National Maritime Awards Dinner in Washington, the annual gathering of the American maritime community in the nation’s capital to celebrate our country’s maritime heritage. Dinner chairs Denise Krepp and VADM Al Konetzni, USN (Ret.) and founding chairman Philip Webster invite you to join the National Maritime Historical Society, National Coast Guard Museum Association and Naval Historical Foundation as we honor those who serve the sea—the US Naval Academy, the US Merchant Marine, and the US Coast Guard Aviation Association—for their important roles in the maritime history of our nation.

This illustrious event brings together in one place those who love and serve the sea—leaders of the military sea services, maritime authors, artists, scientists, sea explorers, competitive yachtsmen, boat designers and builders, cruise operators, maritime educators, museums, philanthropists and government of?cials who have supported America’s maritime heritage.  For information about sponsoring this event and advertising in the dinner journal, please see the Sponsorship Packet and contact Wendy Paggiotta at vicepresident@seahistory.org.
