A message from Arnold Witte, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the American Club.

On behalf of the Directors of the American Club – and indeed, its many Members – I welcome you most warmly to the Club's website from which I hope you will gain useful information about the Club's background and current activities.

Nothing more accurately defines P&I excellence than levels of Member service. And nothing has greater resonance in a maritime industry facing legal and regulatory challenges unprecedented in its history.

In this demanding environment, the American Club is dedicated to providing an intelligent, attentive, sympathetic and results-oriented response to Member needs. Treasuring the traditions of mutuality, the Club respects the importance of every Member, combining the time-honored virtues of skill and integrity with a uniquely New World flair for personal service.

As you navigate the website, please bear this sentiment in mind. The Club stands prepared at any time of the day or night, and in any location, to assist Members in whatever adversity they may find themselves.

The American Club encourages regular contact from its Members and invites those who are interested in learning more to get in touch. Please feel free to do so! All contact details are to be found on this site. In closing, many thanks for showing interest in our Club and happy sailing for the future!

Kindest regards.



Arnold Witte
Chairman
