Government Maritime Managers Forum XXVI: "The man who has experienced shipwreck shudders even at a calm sea"

Author(s): Victor T Mastone

Year: 2018

Summary

While this quote from Ovid is often found at the beginning of shipwreck stories, it is applicable the present political situation facing the protection of heritage. Government managers of submerged cultural resources find themselves between storm and calm on a nearly daily basis. We must balance a diverse set of problems, competing interests, and difficult decisions in response to an ever-increasing need to recognize and accommodate a wide range of appropriate uses. Managers use a variety of strategies to engage these challenges. This session will offer a global multi-agency dialogue where government managers can discuss issues, impediments, and solutions. By sharing our experiences, we can join together critical components for workable solutions.
