A detailed schedule for the International Marina Institute's fall workshop, "Marina Makeover: an Interactive Experience," as well as the annual Southeast Florida Marina and Boatyard Study Tour, are now available at the Association of Marina Industries' website.

The workshop, scheduled for Oct. 21-22 at the Renaissance Boca Raton in Florida, is based on the methods IMI uses in its Advanced Marina Management courses to train Certified Marina Managers, according to AMI.

At the workshop, attendees will choose one of five marinas from different parts of the United States and work in small, facilitated teams to perform a case study. The teams will redesign those facilities, increasing the participants’ overall ability to design, upgrade, and maintain marina facilities. Each group will present its findings and suggestions to the rest of the workshop participants.

The IMI's Southeast Florida Marina and Boatyard Study Tour, set for Oct. 23-24 at the same location, is a mobile classroom that takes students on tours of seven marinas over two days.

Marinas this year include Hinckley, Sailfish Marina in Stuart and Palm Beach, Sunset Bay, American Custom Yachts, River Forest Yachting Center, Loggerhead Marina, Rybovich Superyacht Facility and Riviera Beach Marina. At the end of each day, industry expert Jim Bronstien will lead a facilitated discussion and SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats).
