In the newly created position, Devlin will use her education and communication experience to share content and resources with the industry.

“We are so excited to have Sarah join the ABYC team and she has already hit the ground running,” said Shannon Aronson, ABYC marketing and public relations director. “Her experience, marine industry knowledge and connections are a huge asset to help us create and distribute engaging content.”

Devlin will support event operations, including the Educator Training Conference, July 20-22, and ABYC’s education seminars at the International Boatbuilders’ Exhibition and Conference, Sept. 27-30. She will also coordinate ABYC’s free webinar series, manage social media and produce video content.
