NAMMA Conference 2022 – August 9-11

Theme: Finding our Balance In Seafarers’ Welfare

Introduction: The world of shipping has witnessed tremendous instability in the last several years. The worldwide pandemic and supply chain crunch have caused significant disruption for all those working at sea and in port. Seafarers’ welfare organizations have needed tremendous agility to respond to each new challenge. NAMMA’s 2022 conference explored how to find balance as seafarers’ ministries to serve effectively, but also how to encourage balance in the lives of the seafarers we serve and in our own lives. The conference welcomed more than 100 representatives of local and international seafarers’ welfare organizations but is open to all other partners in the wider maritime community.

Venue: Maritime Conference Center at 692 Maritime Blvd, Linthicum Heights, MD 21090, United States.
