C-PORT Meets Needs of Growth and Development


C-PORT Hires Director of Government Affairs


C-PORT, Conference of Professional Operators for Response Towing, the national voice for the Marine Assistance Industry, announces the hiring of Tina Cardone as Director of Government Affairs.  “I have been involved in the Marine Assistance Industry for over 22 years,” says Ms. Cardone.  “I look forward to working for the continued growth and development of this industry.”


C-PORT was founded in 1985 to act as a liaison between the marine assistance industry and public agencies and organizations involved with boating safety, marine assistance, marine salvage and other marine-related operations.  “Working with the various government agencies along with promoting the association are time consuming tasks,” explains Terry Hill, Chairman of C-PORT.  “Tina has been hired to organize and lead the association creating partnerships throughout the marine industry, discovering opportunities for growth, and working with government agencies to insure a viable marine assistance industry.” 


Tina Cardone started her career in the marine industry in 1987.  Her experience spans from being instrumental in creating a membership program based on the newly emerging marine assistance industry to representing the industry at various community functions, educating the public in boating issues and developing relationships throughout the boating industry.  My background gives me insight into how a marine business must juggle legislative requirements, employment needs and serving the boating community with profitability,” remarks Cardone.  “I believe this combination allows me to view issues on a number of levels and enables me to speak to the issues from different perspectives.


C-PORT was created in part to afford a means of cooperation with the government in matters of national concern; to provide an objective, self-regulating body for the marine assistance industry; and to promote, through legislative, regulatory, and governmental initiatives, the maintenance and expansion of the marine assistance industry.  For more information, contact C-PORT at (866) 598-5977 or contact Ms. Cardone directly at (954) 532-9589.
