AAPA Anywhere: Communications, Administration & Legal Issues

AAPA Anywhere: Communications, Administration & Legal Issues

AAPA Anywhere’s virtual Communications, Administration & Legal Issues Seminar, February 22-26, 2021, will address some of the top challenges, trends and best practices related to the intersection of three important port authority disciplines. Day One will focus on port corporate social responsibility, or earning a port’s “social license to operate.” Day Two will look at port real estate issues and activities, such as marine terminal leases, structuring fee provisions, legal and regulatory lease limitations, condemnation and eminent domain uses, and the attorney’s role in emergency preparation and response. Day Three will cover detention and demurrage issues and solutions, particularly relating to recent import container congestion and empty container shortages. Day Four will explore how various ports are improving public perceptions and appreciation of their critical role in the transportation system. Day Five will offer training and best practices on enhancing diversity, equity and inclusion in the workplace.

AAPA Anywhere: Communications, Administration & Legal Issues Seminar will deliver timely, relevant content from experts, exclusive networking and interaction with colleagues and educational opportunities from industry solution providers. Registered participants will be able to access pre-recorded content, participate in live Q&A sessions with content presenters, and exchange messages with colleagues through an event app. The event will offer businesses heightened visibility through sponsorship opportunities and provide opportunities in which to connect.
