Often, the Canaveral Port Authority vice chair becomes chair in the following year. But it is not unprecedented for a chair to serve two consecutive one-year terms.

Hattaway, the outgoing vice chair, said she had no expectations that she would be elevated to chair for the coming year, and has no issues with Loyd continuing as chair.

“Micah has done a great job,” Hattaway said after the meeting.

Port commissioners also will remain in the current liaison roles for the coming year:

• Allender will be on the Space Coast Transportation Planning Organization.

• Hattaway will be liaison to the Titusville Area Chamber of Commerce and the Orlando Economic Partnership.

• Harvey will be liaison to Orlando International Airport.

Justice will be serve on the Economic Development Council of Florida‘s Space Coast.

• Loyd will be liaison to the Cocoa Beach Regional Area Chamber of Commerce.
