ABYC Reschedules Meetings

1_ABYC

The American Boat and Yacht Council announced new dates for its annual meeting and Marine Law Symposium, which were canceled earlier this month because of the Covid-19 omicron surge.

The annual meeting is scheduled for Feb. 8 at 5:30 p.m. (ET) as a virtual event open to all. Register here.

“The decision to postpone wasn’t easy, but we are happy to quickly announce our plans moving forward,” ABYC president John Adey said in a statement. “Last year, we conducted a successful virtual annual meeting, so this is not new territory. And due to proprietary information from our speakers, the Marine Law Symposium will be in-person in the spring, when we expect travel and gathering requirements to be more favorable.”

The Marine Law Symposium is slated for April 6 in Providence, R.I. Register here.
