The Florida Yacht Brokers Association launched an interactive website that includes a job board.

“This new website, which was developed by Advantage Services in Fort Lauderdale, accomplishes several goals that we set for online interactivity with our members, the yachting industry and the public,” FYBA executive director Cindy Sailor said in a statement.

“The site’s improved functionality makes it easier for FYBA members to register for our many seminars and networking events, as well as to renew their membership online. We also added a new video channel and a job board, and made the FYBA membership directory sortable by industry as well as by name. For example, you can now search just for yacht charter agents or for surveyors.”

The FYBA website also includes such features as an upgraded payment processing function able to accept all credit cards, including American Express; an event and seminar calendar and details, with immediate RSVP options for open events; an interactive members’ portal, including online new member application and membership and sponsor database; upgraded photo galleries of FYBA seminars and events; a YouTube video channel with the FYBA’s latest videos; sponsorship packages; and yachting industry news

“This is just one of the many ways we are continually working to improve our services to our membership,” Sailor said.
