Salute to Congress





The International Propeller Club recognized the leadership of Senator Maria Cantwell (D, WA) with its 39th annual Salute to Congress award on June 13, 2023, at a reception and dinner at the Army Navy Country Club, 1700 Army Navy Drive, Arlington, Virginia. Senator Cantwell, a strong advocate for America’s maritime industry, has represented the State of Washington in the United States Senate since 2001 and is the first woman to serve as Chair of the Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation.

In presenting the award to Senator Cantwell, International Propeller Club President Jim Patti told the more than 225 industry and government guests that Senator Cantwell “is in every sense a tireless advocate, a relentless fighter and an unapologetic supporter of a strong U.S.-flag maritime industry.”
