The deadline is next Friday to submit a proposal for topics at the International Marina Institute's fall conference, "Increasing Marina Profits in the New Economy: From Surviving to Thriving."

This year's conference is scheduled for Oct. 23-25 in Fort Lauderdale.

IMI staff is accepting proposals that focus on new profit ideas, ways to use an existing marina footprint to its maximum capacity, and methods for surviving and thriving in the new economy.

Specifically, the IMI is looking for proposals on marina reconstruction projects that have been developed and/or completed within the last three years; retrofit plans for maximizing a current footprint; ideas for streamlining business systems and processes; financing for the aforementioned types of projects; permitting and related business issues; technical engineering; marketing and social networking; and best profit ideas.
