Silver Bell for CMA

The Seamen's Church Institute has announced that the Connecticut Maritime Association (CMA) will be the recipient of the 2005 Silver Bell at the 28th Annual Silver Bell Awards Dinner on Thursday, June 9 at Chelsea Piers in New York City. Last year, close to 1,000 people attended.

"CMA, through its member services and first-rate conferences, has greatly advanced the timely, and important, consideration of issues affecting the worldwide maritime industry. Its efforts have led to a greater understanding of how the shipping community, governments and the public can work together for the benefit of all," said the Rev. Dr. Jean R. Smith, Executive Director of the Seamen's Church Institute.

The Institute's Center for Seafarers' Rights has received international acclaim as an advocate for the world's seafarers.
