September 1st Luncheon

Topic: Resumption of cruising, the pandemic year, and other new developments at the Port of Galveston

The Hyatt will have plenty of space for social distancing, tables will be spread far apart, and every other seat will be left vacant at each table. Every individual should use their own discretion in regard to hand-shaking, and we ask that you consider the comfort level of others. Remember, elbow bumping is the new hi-5!

Luncheon registration closes at 5:00 pm central time the Monday before the luncheon.
Walk-ins are on a first come, first serve basis.  No space is guaranteed if you are not registered.
Be sure that you are registering here for a secure spot.

Since Rees took the helm in January 2018, the Port of Galveston has increased net profits, developed and implemented a 20-year Strategic Master Plan, and signed a $110 million contract with Royal Caribbean to build a third cruise terminal complex at the Port.

Rees previously served as Deputy Executive Director and Chief Financial Officer for Port Canaveral, the world’s second-busiest cruise port.  He was responsible for managing and safeguarding the Port’s financial assets, as well as all financial functions.
