ABYC to hold annual meeting in Annapolis

The American Boat & Yacht Council will hold its 2011 annual meeting at 5:30 p.m. March 24 at the historic Annapolis Maritime Museum on the shores of Back Creek in Annapolis, Md.

ABYC's membership, which includes boatbuilders, surveyors, boatyards, insurance companies, marinas, dealerships and manufacturers, will gather to welcome new board members, recognize departing ones and present service awards.

"This is a unique opportunity for members to network with many different factions of the marine industry while learning about new and updated standards, work force certifications and marketing developments planned for 2011," ABYC president Skip Burdon said in a statement.

The ABYC board will meet prior to the annual meeting at the U.S. Naval Academy. The ABYC Foundation board will convene March 25 at ABYC headquarters.

Members are encouraged to RSVP to sburdon@abycinc.org, as space is limited.
