The International Association of Maritime and Port Executives (IAMPE) is a not-for-profit membership association dedicated to developing and maintaining professional standards in the maritime industry. The IAMPE achieves this goal in two primary ways – by cultivating a membership network of port professionals across North America, and by providing a standardized education program to certify port professionals and pave the way for long term professional development. Learn more about who we are, our advisory board, and our connections to other organizations within the industry.
