The Containerization and Intermodal Institute's Connie Award luncheon, held annually in early December, invariably draws capacity attendance. This year, in addition to its Dec. 7 luncheon in Newark, CII will hold a second awards ceremony at an Oct. 1 dinner in Long Beach.
CII President Allen Clifford, executive vice president of Mediterranean Shipping Co., says the additional event is being held to meet demand and is scheduled for Long Beach "so our West Coast business community can honor our recipients as well."
CII is seeking nominations (www.containerization.org/nominations.htm) for both the California and the New York-New Jersey events. The Connie award has been presented since 1972 to recipients in the rail, shipping, ports, importers, exporters, 3PLs, technology company and the news media, among others.
In addition to the awards at both events, CII will present scholarships to students studying logistics or transportation. For more information, contact Barbara Yeninas, CII executive director, at (800) 231-8244 or email@example.com.
