HOLMDEL, NJ -- The Containerization & Intermodal Institute (CII) is seeking nominations for the 2015 annual Connie Award to be held at a luncheon on December 7 at The Newark Club.
Named for the container, the Connie Award has been presented annually since 1972 to those who have made outstanding contributions to the containerization and intermodal industry, involved with rail, shipping, ports, importers and exporters, 3PLs, technology, government officials and the media.
"We are seeking nominations of deserving industry leaders that have made an positive impact on the industry and its future," said Michael DiVirgilio, CII President.
In Long Beach, the Connie Award dinner will honor the Honorable Mario Cordero, Chairman of the Federal Maritime Commission. Tay Yoshitani, past CEO of the Port of Seattle, will receive the Lifetime Achievement award on September 29th at the Renaissance Hotel. Tickets and sponsorship opportunities are available.
