Following CDC guidelines and prohibitions on large gatherings, and with the health and safety of our staff and members foremost in our thoughts, the National Maritime Historical Society postponed the Annual Meeting planned 8-10 May 2020 in Philadelphia. The event will be rescheduled for 30 July-1 August 2021 when we look forward to hosting next year’s 58th Annual Meeting at Independence Seaport Museum.

For this year’s 57th Annual Meeting, the Trustees of the National Maritime Historical Society are pleased to provide this 2020 Annual Meeting Report on the organization’s operations, financial condition, programs, educational initiatives, Sea History magazine, advocacy, and the results of the online election of Trustees to the Class of 2023.  Our mission, as the national voice of the maritime heritage, is to preserve America’s rich maritime history.  Our membership is crucial to our success—you are the heart and soul and essence of all we do and why we do it, and we are inspired when you stand with us.

Please reach out to Society leadership with any questions and suggestions you may have by emailing, and help us continue the work we do with an online donation today. We look forward to a challenging and successful year ahead, and to joining you once again in 2021.

Thank you for your ongoing support, with best regards from all of us at the National Maritime Historical Society.
