What is ShiPosium?
ShiPosium brings together preservationists, mariners, and historians from across the country to discuss the challenges, opportunities, and realities of conserving or utilizing heritage ships for modern purposes.
The ShiPosium is held in tandem with SSHSA’s Annual Conference, attended by SSHSA members from all over the country. Attendees are invited to attend social gatherings, outings to local attractions, and special maritime-related tours, in addition to the ShiPosium.
The first ShiPosium was held in May 2012 aboard NS Savannah moored in Baltimore Harbor. It included case studies of Savannah, SS Badger, SS Delta Queen, SS United States, and USS Olympia. The keynote speaker was the Honorable Helen Delich Bentley, former U.S. Maritime Commissioner and 4-term member of the U.S. House of Representatives. Ms. Bentley is and always has been an ardent supporter of the U.S. Merchant Marine.
