The Connecticut Marine Trades Association will hold its initial Young Marine Industry Professionals meeting at 6 p.m. on Jan. 22 in the CMTA Hartford Boat Exhibitor Lounge.
The group is for everyone in the industry who is under the age of 40, whether they are association members or not, association president Grant Westerson said in a letter.
“They are the future of our boating industry and a group like this will give them an opportunity to share ideas, problems and solutions and perhaps bypass some of the snags we ran into over the years,” Westerson wrote.
The meeting will be a short organizational session. Those planning to attend should email Sam Crocker at firstname.lastname@example.org
