COMITT attendees offered networking opportunities

In addition to producing the Conference on Marine Industry Technical Training, the Marine Industry Technical Education Council will provide several networking opportunities during the International BoatBuilders' Exposition and Conference.

After the closing session of COMITT Oct. 11, Shake-A-Leg Miami will host an evening of socializing and networking for all COMITT attendees at the SALM waterfront facility in Coconut Grove, Fla. During the remainder of the week, attendees and their families will have access to the facility's waterfront to enjoy boating in Biscayne Bay.

MITEC members will also be staffing a booth at IBEX, where COMITT and IBEX attendees can connect to exchange information on a range of topics related to marine industry training.

"COMITT places great importance on establishing working relationships between our attendees and resource people who can benefit the attendees, their organizations, their employees, and the marine industry's future work force," said Barbara Jean Walsh, COMITT planning committee chair, in a statement.

"While much networking takes place during the conference itself, we want to provide as many opportunities as possible for our attendees to keep the momentum going throughout the week," she added.
