Whether your school has a successful program, just got on board with the ABYC curriculum, or is looking to teach marine service, this event is for you!  


New and returning attendees will find directly applicable content, interactive learning, and industry connections! 


Who should attend: Educators and school administrators who are teaching or thinking about teaching a marine service tech course. Also, marine industry leaders interested in connecting with educators around the country and supporting workforce development.



What they said from the 2019 inaugural event

“I was astonished and impressed with the group and I made some great connections. I also walked away with ideas for my own program."

“I was glad conversation was about what we can do and what we are doing, not another conversation about what we should do"

"Informative, educational, and enjoyable. All around excellent event."

"Great event. Love to see and hear others with the same passion for the marine industry!"
