The Association of Marina Industries said the Pacific Coast Congress of Harbormasters & Port Managers is its newest membership partner.

The Association of Marina Industries said the Pacific Coast Congress of Harbormasters & Port Managers is its newest membership partner.

All PCC marina and harbor facilities members will automatically become AMI members as part of their PCC membership, giving them access to all AMI services, products and benefits, in addition to those they already receive from the PCC.

“We are especially excited to have another affiliate partner from the West Coast. This allows us the chance to engage more harbormasters, harbor facilities and marina managers from the area and helps us create specific training opportunities for our West Coast audience,” AMI chairman Brad Gross said in a statement.

The PCC is an organization of commercial and recreational marina professionals that promote the development and growth of the industry and membership through communication, education and professional certification.

“We’re excited to be involved with the Association of Marina Industries and feel that this is a great opportunity for the growth of both of our organizations in the marine industry. With the extensive surveys and reports done by AMI, to the webinars and certification programs, I know our members will be taking advantage of our new alliance,” PCC president Mike Loy said.

Through the new relationship with the PCC, the AMI also will increase its affiliate relationships with state marine trade groups, which already include the Tennessee Marina Association, the Midwest Marina Association, the Virginia Marine Trades Association, Boating British Columbia and the Marina Association of Texas.
