Note from the President

Dear Members and Guests,

Happy New Year to all of you! I hope you all had an enjoyable holiday break and closed out 2017 happily with family and friends. I want to thank all who attended the 2017 ITMA Christmas Party. It was a wonderful night and a pleasure seeing all of you. We greatly appreciate you joining us for the evening and sincerely thank you all for your support, generous sponsorships, and donations this past year.

I think with cautious optimism we can safely say we have turned the corner now going into 2018 and that there are some good indicators of markets improving. Although some headway was made in 2017, it was certainly a tough year and made even more difficult by Hurricane Harvey and all that it brought. Hopefully with that behind us and with some strong tailwinds taking us into 2018, we’ll see a much more prosperous and stable year for all.

We had a great turnout and closed our 2017 luncheon year in November with a superb panel of speakers. I want to sincerely thank John Hark of Bertling Logistics, Dana Martin of Hill Rivkins LLP, Margaret J. Vaughan of Wood, Thomas Damsgaard of Inchcape Shipping Services, and Doug Shoemaker from Blank Rome LLP for joining us in November and for providing our members with a very enjoyable and most informative presentation. I also want to thank our November luncheon sponsor, Burkhalter Rigging and Transport, for their generous support.

We are very much looking forward to seeing you all at the upcoming January 10th luncheon to kick off 2018. Please join us in welcoming Mr. John A. Moseley who is Senior Director, Trade Development with the Port of Houston Authority. John joined Port Houston as General Manager of the Trade Development Department in February 2010, earning the title of Senior Director in 2014.  He has 30+ years of professional experience with ocean carriers, international freight forwarders, customs house brokers and beneficial cargo owners in the U.S. and overseas. We are very honored to have Mr. Moseley as our guest speaker for the first luncheon of the new year and hope you all can attend. Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Warmest Regards,

Mitch Heiserman
ITMA President
