Affiliates to ICMA’s founding member, the North American Maritime Ministry Association (NAMMA), are urged to register for the upcoming NAMMA Conference. The NAMMA Conference commences on August 5, 2013 and concludes on August 8.
“It is shaping up to be a great time of sharing and learning,” said Loring Carpenter, the NAMMA Executive Director and soon to be General Secretary of ICMA.
The quality of speakers, the content and relevance of the presentations, and the chance to share mutual issues as we serve seafarers make this an invaluable few days. In addition, you’ll have fun in the sun! We will have a chance to meet the new General Secretary of Mission to Seafarers, and hear from him on the life of Fishers (he was most recently the leader of a mission to Fishers). Our keynote speaker will be Keynote Speaker: Rev. John W. Crossin, OSFS, Executive Director, Secretariat for Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops from the Bishops Council and a dynamic advocate of mariners. And we will have opportunity to learn more about Critical Incident Stress Management from one of the internationally known trainers.
