ABBRA members invited to roundtable discussions

The American Boat Builders & Repairers Association; Bennett Brothers Yachts, of  Wilmington, N.C.; and Bristol Marine, of Bristol, R.I. are collectively hosting free regional roundtable discussions on June 22 and June 29.

The regional roundtables are open to ABBRA members and non-members.

Roundtables offer a chance for similar marinas, boatyards and boatbuilding and repair businesses to discuss common problems and solutions within the marine industry.

The issues discussed at the roundtable are determined by the participants and can include boatyard economics, managing busy season workloads, training employees and new yard technologies.

For information, or to register for either of these events, call Jessica Slemons at (401) 247-0318 or e-mail jslemons@abbra.org.
