EDUCATIONAL EVENTS

 

If you want to keep employees safe and claims costs low, it's critical to stay educated. That's why AEU puts an emphasis on training our members and brokers on the latest trends in safety, claims, leadership, staffing and more.

When registration opens, a link will appear below the event.


NATIONAL & REGIONAL Forums

National Forum

This annual event addresses leadership, safety and claims-related topics important to shipyards, stevedores, marine terminal operators, and marine construction companies. For a day and a half, ALMA members and their brokers learn from industry experts and peers about field-tested methods, emerging trends, and solutions to common issues. The forum is held in major U.S. cities and typically draws more than 100 maritime industry professionals from the field of safety, claims, HR, operations and executive management.

 


 

Regional Forums

AEU hosts one-day seminars throughout the year to provide educational information related to leadership, loss control, claims handling, safety culture development, and more. Held regionally and at no cost to ALMA members, these seminars are ideal for members of all sizes looking to learn new skills and network with others in their industry.


 

Dates for our next National and Regional Forums will be posted soon.

This means that by focusing on your people and involving them in decisions, you enhance output and retention while reducing incidents and claims costs. Join the AEU Virtual Forum as we showcase actionable tools to improve your safety program, claims handling processes, and organizational leadership in a way that drives a more engaged and reliable workforce.
