Salute to Congress




The International Propeller Club will recognize the leadership of The Honorable Joe Courtney with its 38th annual Salute to Congress award on May 17, 2022 at a reception, 5:30 P.M. and dinner 7:00 P.M. at the Army Navy Country Club, 1700 Army Navy Drive, Arlington, Virginia.   

The Propeller Club’s Salute to Congress is the maritime industry’s most prestigious and anticipated annual event in the Nation’s Capital. For more than three decades, the Club and its members have recognized Members of Congress who have demonstrated consistent support for the maritime industry and the United States-flag Merchant Marine and, by extension, honors the entire Congress for its support of our industry

Announcing the selection of Congressman Courtney as this year’s honoree, International President C. James Patti stated that “During his time in Congress, Chairman Courtney has been a forceful and outspoken advocate for all segments of the maritime industry.  Throughout his career, he has played a key role in the enactment of numerous maritime legislative initiatives and has worked tirelessly to ensure that the programs and policies important to our industry are funded, implemented and enforced.”
