President’s Message

Frank Montecalvo, President


I am honoured and humbled to be chosen to serve as the President of The Marine Club as we celebrate our 85th year.

The Marine Club membership encompasses a range of marine industry stakeholders who promote trade throughout the Great Lakes/Seaway System. The Marine Club remains a vital organization bringing together the marine industry, encouraging fellowship, socialization and cooperation. Our membership continues to grow in size and reach which allows us to explore new opportunities for our industry.

Over the years, The Marine Club has evolved with the times and our goal has always been to ensure that we bring value for our members and for the communities in which we operate. We continue to explore fresh event ideas, add value to our Corporate Membership and create new ways to support industry through our Good Works Program. Marine Club initiatives promote the Great Lakes St. Lawrence Seaway System as an efficient and significant transportation mode while also distributing approximately $50,000 annually through our Good Works Program to organizations like Georgian College, Royal Canadian Sea Cadets, The Mission to Seafarers, The Brigs and the Canadian Marine Careers Foundation.

As a long-time Board member and now as President of the Marine Club, I am truly excited about what this year will bring. I would like to thank our Corporate and Individual members for their continued participation and enthusiasm for our professional community. I would also like to thank my fellow Board members for their comradery and dedication to ensuring that The Marine Club continues its legacy of excellence and leadership in the marine industry and in the community.

Wishing all our members a good and successful year ahead and looking forward to seeing you at our events.
