Nov. 9, 2011 - PRLog -- Sacramento, CA – The California Maritime Leadership Symposium (CMLS) organizing committee recently announced that California State Senator Alan Lowenthal has been selected as the 2012 Symposium Honoree of Merit and Richard D. Steinke, Executive Director of the Port of Long Beach, has been selected to receive the 2nd annual Gary L. Gregory Lifetime Achievement Award. Senator Lowenthal and Mr. Steinke will be honored during a special reception at the 2012 California Maritime Leadership Symposium, which will take place February 1-2, 2012 at the Sacramento Convention Center.

The Honoree of Merit Award is bestowed each year upon an individual who has made a significant and demonstrable contribution to the Maritime Transportation System in the state of California. As the 2012 Honoree, Senator Lowenthal will be recognized for his commitment within state government to raising awareness of the importance of public ports and generating a collaborative spirit throughout regulatory agencies, private industry and local communities in regard to environmental stewardship issues.

"Senator Lowenthal has been strongly committed to a robust, safe and green port industry in California throughout his tenure in state government as an Assembly Member and Senator,” commented Robert Dockendorff, CALMITSAC Chairman.  “As he winds down his role in state governance, we are pleased to announce that he has been chosen as the Honoree for the 2012 California Maritime Leadership Symposium.  His mark on California's maritime industry is deep and lasting.  He is more than deserving of this honor."

The Gary L. Gregory Lifetime Achievement Award is presented annually by the CMLS organizing committee to an individual who has exemplified a strong commitment to California’s maritime and transportation industry throughout the course of a distinguished career. Mr. Steinke has been selected as the 2nd annual Gary L. Gregory Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient for his efforts and contributions to the maritime and goods movement industry throughout his tenure at the Port of Long Beach.

"I have worked with Mr. Steinke for 14 years on a wide variety of California port issues through the California Association of Port Authorities,” noted David Hull, Symposium Chair. “Even as the leader of one of the largest ports in the world, Mr. Steinke has always been incredibly supportive of all ports in California and has worked tirelessly to promote a California marine transportation system that is comprised of all 11 public ports.  He has been a great friend and colleague and I believe that it is extremely appropriate that Mr. Steinke receive the 2012 Gary L. Gregory Lifetime Achievement Award."

Senator Lowenthal and Mr. Steinke will be formally honored during a special reception at the 12th Annual California Maritime Leadership Symposium among an audience of their peers including policy makers, port executives, maritime industry leaders and transportation planners.
