Ports and Terminals Luncheon

    One of our premier educational events for our members and the public, the Ports and Terminals Luncheon presents nationally recognized industry experts in a format that encourages questions and lively debate.

    On June 25, 2019, we will feature Gene Seroka, executive director of the largest port in the nation, the Port of Los Angeles. 

    POLA is the largest port in the United States and the Western Hemisphere. Mr. Seroka will describe his vision for making this thriving seaport a global model for responsible growth. He will also update us on how shifting trade patterns, progressive security measures, and upcoming environmental regulations will affect cargo flow. This will be a lively, informative, and interactive event and your chance to network with your industry colleagues.
