The International Marina Institute, a training subsidiary of the Association of Marina Industries, scheduled a second "Marina Makeover: An Interactive Experience," set for Nov. 16-17 at the Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare Hotel in Rosemont, Ill.

“We had initially planned only one of these workshops, but it was so well-received, we’ve chosen to offer it again,” AMI chairman Gary Groenewold said in a statement. “AMI strives to offer training events that translate to real-world experiences and this intense workshop really dives into marina design and maintenance so participants can return to their facilities with real, practical knowledge.”

At the workshop in November, attendees will choose one of five marina facilities from different parts of the country 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 their findings and suggestions to the rest of the workshop participants.
