The reception following the seminar is in honor of the participants of AMVER. AMVER participants are merchant ships that volunteer to be available for maritime emergency response. The AMVER Awards Program was inaugurated in 1971 to recognize those vessels which regularly participate in the AMVER system. Ships flying the various colored AMVER pennants are a constant reminder on the oceans of that ship and company's commitment to safety at sea. Prominent display of AMVER Certificates, found in company boardrooms, corporate office reception areas and on the bulkhead of a ship's bridge or wardroom, attest to the prestige accorded with these awards. ADM Karl Schultz, Commandant of the USCG, will be participating in the ceremony.
