Welcome to the 47th annual Houston Marine Insurance Seminar to be held on September 16th 18th 2012. We are looking forward to our 47th year as the leading Global Energy and Marine Seminar. Well over 700 paid delegates annually come to Houston for the three-day event.
The 2011 seminar continued our string of successful events allowing us to carry on our support of 13 educational institutions with a total grant of $110,000. The schools are truly grateful to the delegates and the seminar for that generosity. The average yearly seminar donation to various educational institutions is over $100,000. Over $2,200,000 in total has been donated, which has provided scholarships in insurance, to admiralty law libraries, and for moot court competitions.
Our seminar meetings will once again be held in the Ballroom of the Westin Galleria Hotel, 5060 West Alabama. Using the links below, please make your reservations today to ensure accommodations will be available. The lovely Westin Galleria was renovated in 2010, and all delegate bookings directly help to offset costs and maximize donations to the education institutions mentioned above.
Since 1965, what is now Marine Insurance Seminars, Inc. has been sponsoring the Houston Marine Insurance Seminar. In all that time only 2008 was missed due to Hurricane Ike. Marine Insurance Seminars, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) corporation whose purpose is to provide and promote educational opportunities in Marine and Energy Insurance and Admiralty Law. University students are also invited to the seminar to learn about Marine and Energy Insurance and to develop contacts for careers in our industry.
