Successful General Council meeting in Fort Lauderdale

CSA GC Ft LauderdaleThe General Council of the Caribbean Shipping Association had its first meeting of the year in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on 16 January.

This was the first time that the new General Council had met in an official capacity since being elected at the CSA’s Annual General Meeting in Port of Spain, Trinidad in October 2016. Consequently, this was also the first General Council meeting attended by the newest members of the Executive – Group D chairman Martin Medina and Tom Paelink – who were elected at the Trinidad AGM.

President David Jean-Marie said: “This year, for the first time in a long time, the General Council meeting was held in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, which is a change from the traditional venue in Kingston, Jamaica, where the Secretariat has its offices. We are happy to say that it was quite a productive meeting with key decisions being taken which will guide the operations of the Association for the rest of the year.”
