The Marine Trades Association of New Jersey recently held its annual awards dinner and elected its 2011-12 officers and directors.

Kersten Roehsler, of Viking Terminal Marine, was elected president and is the first woman to hold the post. Fred Brueggemann, of Key Harbor Marina & Yacht Sales, will be first vice president; Walter Johnson III, of Johnson & Towers, will be second vice president.

Ed Harrison III, of Baywood Marina, will be treasurer, and Raymond Bogan, of Sinn, Fitzsimmons, Cantoli, Bogan & West, will continue as secretary.

This year, the Hall of Fame Award was presented to John Curtis of The Ship Chandlers in honor of outstanding contributions and tireless commitment to the association and the marine industry in New Jersey.

Curtis has been involved in the association for more than 25 years. He joined its board in 1993, and in 1995 he became treasurer, a post he has held for the past 15 years.

"John has been extremely dedicated and committed to the association, always looking out for the best interests of the organization and its members. He has provided his continuous support and assistance on many committees and association efforts over the years, and it has been a pleasure working with him," MTA/NJ executive director Melissa Danko said in a statement.

The association also held its Sponsor of the Year Awards at the dinner. The association established the award seven years ago to show its appreciation and to recognize the leading sponsors and supporters of association events.

The Top Sponsor of the Year award went to John B. Wright Insurance for the sixth consecutive year. The second runner-up award went to Point Bay Fuel, and the third runner-up was Comstock Yacht Sales & Marina.
