Upcoming Events

Welcome aboard!


JRW_Pic.pngWelcome to the International Propeller Club's website!  This year the Propeller Club is celebrating our 90th anniversary with more than 80 chapters, or Ports, in maritime locations around the world, including almost 30 in foreign cities.  We are an international business network dedicated to the promotion of the maritime industry, commerce and global trade. 

We are pleased to offer information about ongoing Club activities and information about how you can find a Propeller Club Port near you and become involved. On our website, you can find information about this year's international activities, as well as upcoming events hosted by Propeller Club Ports around the world.  If your Port's events aren't listed, please contact us for instructions on how to submit that information.

For our members, we have also launched several exciting new modules to the site, including an online community to exchange information with other Club members and the capability to host local Port websites. Ports are urged to submit their membership reports and leadership updates as soon as possible to help us implement those functions. Links to these forms are in the lower left corner of this home page.

Thank you for your interest in and support of the International Propeller Club.

RADM Joel Whitehead, USCG (ret.)
International President
