The Penbay Chapter of MMA Alumni Association will hold its spring meeting Tuesday, May 15 with a social hour beginning at 5:30pm followed by a brief business meeting and guest presentation at 6:30pm at the Eclipse Restaurant, 2 Park Drive, Rockland.

We are fortunate to have Mr. Brian Curtis who serves as the Director for the Office of Marine Safety at the National Transportation Safety Board as our guest speaker to talk about the sinking of EL FARO and NTSB investigation.

Brian Curtis received a Bachelor of Science degree in Marine Engineering from Maine Maritime Academy in Castine, Maine in 1981. After graduation until 2003, Mr. Curtis served as an engineering officer on US flagged Merchant vessels including tankers, military supply vessels, cruise vessels, and transoceaniccable-laying vessels, having sailed the final 12 years as chief engineer.

Following his 22-year shipping career, he joined the NTSB’s Office of Marine Safety as an engineering operations investigator in 2003, and was promoted to Deputy Director for the office in 2012. He was selected for the Director’s position in 2016. Mr. Curtis achieved an unlimited horsepower chief engineer’s steam, motor, and gas turbine license during his merchant marine career. Mr. Curtis has launched and served as investigator-in-charge on numerous high-profile major marine casualty investigations during his time with the NTSB.

Mr. Curtis is a native of Rockland, Maine, and now resides in the Annapolis, Maryland area.
