U.S. Representative Cedric Richmond (LA-02) serves as co-chair of the Congressional Maritime Caucus, a caucus he founded in 2013 with Michael G. Grimm (NY-11). The Caucus raises awareness among members of Congress on a broad range of maritime-related topics.

"The maritime industry is the unsung hero of our nation's economy," said Rep. Richmond. "From Alaska to Puerto Rico, Louisiana to New York, every day this industry facilitates trade and delivers energy resources that support millions of jobs and pays billions in state and federal taxes every year. I also look forward to highlighting the role other industries play in supporting maritime commerce, be it in the fields of law, engineering, shipbuilding or insurance."

America's ports are vital to the employment of 13.3 million workers nationwide. Today, international trade accounts for more than 25 percent of America's gross domestic product. U.S. seaport activities generate more than $3.15 trillion in annual economic output, with $3.8 billion worth of goods moving in and out of seaports every day around the country.

The International Propeller Club established this occasion as the maritime industry's opportunity to honor a Member of Congress—and by extension, the entire Congress—for their support of our important industry. Attendees enjoy a reception and gala dinner at Army Navy Country Club, just across the Potomac from Capitol Hill and five minutes from National Airport.

The Propeller Club was conceived in 1922 of maritime professionals who met informally each day over lunch to discuss issues of the industry. As the group became too large for casual conversation, speakers began to be invited to address the group.  In January of 1923 the "Propeller Club of the Port of New York" was formed, with thirty-three in attendance choosing the name and scheduling regular meetings.

Today, the International Propeller Club of the United States is an international business network dedicated to the promotion of the maritime industry, commerce and global trade. There are more than 80 Ports ( in maritime locations around the world, including almost 30 in foreign cities.
