USCG commandant to address Passenger Vessel Assn. convention

US Coast Guard commandant Adm. Paul F. Zukunft
Commandant of the US Coast Guard Adm. Paul F. Zukunft is scheduled to deliver a keynote address at the Passenger Vessel Association annual convention at MariTrends 2015 in Long Beach, California. He is to speak at the general session on the morning of Feb. 2.

'We are honored and delighted to have Adm. Zukunft address our convention,' PVA president Terri Bernstein said. 'He is responsible for setting policy concerning our industry and I encourage all PVA members to attend to learn about his priorities for the future.'

Zukunft assumed command of the USCG in May. He leads the largest component of the Department of Homeland Security, composed of 88,000 personnel including active duty, reserve, civilian and volunteer auxiliary.

Zukunft is very familiar with PVA, having spoken at the 2013 PVA Western Region Meeting in San Francisco when he was commander of the Coast Guard Pacific Area.
