On July 21, 2022, Jim Butler, Alaska Chadux̂ Network (ACN) External Affairs Director, presented at the Gallagher Marine Systems (GMS) 2022 North American Regulatory Seminar in Galloway, New Jersey. Jim was asked to present on “APCs and Western Alaska Shipping: Latest Issues & Current Trends.”
The Seminar included participation from representatives of various shipping companies, insurers and underwriters, salvage providers, oil spill response specialists, maritime attorneys, and GMS technical experts. Updates on current trends were also provided by the U.S. Coast Guard, as well as ITOPF and Intertanko.
“We have many ships in the ACN APC programs that want to stay up on the latest issues in Western Alaska compliance,” said Jim Butler. “These Forums are an excellent opportunity to brief various sectors of the maritime industry on the unique challenges in Western Alaska and answer their questions.” ACN regularly works with all Qualified Individual providers and response plan administrators to assist them with their important mission of keeping their client vessel operators informed of the latest developments in Western Alaska.
