Cape Fear Chapter.

The Cape Fear Chapter has enjoyed continued increase in membership, and stands now at 102 members strong and climbing. The Chapter is still #1 in the "small chapter category" for membership. The so-called "twofer" program, whereby two members can join for the price of one, continues for new members. Their biggest fund-raising event, the first annual golf tournament and dinner banquet was held at the Carolina National Golf Club at Winding River Plantation on May 19th during National Transportation Week; proceeds benefited the local Chapter scholarship fund designed to assist graduating high school seniors and college students related to Chapter members. Guest Speaker was Major General Butch Pair, Chief of Staff, USTRANSCOM, who served in that billet for several years. Attendees from the transportation and logistics community from across the country were in attendance. Industry sponsorship was strong, too, with a big "thanks" to Steve Kerr who went the extra mile to make this a memorable event.

On May 20th, members joined "Industry Day" at the Military Ocean Terminal Sunny Point (MOTSU) where updates were provided on the on-going progress on the terminal along with industry briefs. And on May 22nd, the NC State Port hosted "Maritime Day" and Open House in Wilmington. It was a truly ambitious, and successful, schedule in honor of National Transportation Week.
