Marina committee to meet at drystack conference


The International Council of Marine Industry Associations is holding its Marinas Committee meeting Oct. 24-26 at the International Marina Institute's Drystack Conference in Fort Lauderdale.

"The [committee] generally meets twice a year with an occasional meeting scheduled to coincide with a significant international event," committee chairman Roberto Perocchio said in a statement. "The IMI Drystack Conference offers an ideal opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with our American counterparts."

The Marinas Committee is a working group dedicated to ICOMIA's mission of sharing and exchanging technical and professional information concerning the development of marinas, drystack boat storage, boat ramps and other marine infrastructure around the globe.

"This further represents our commitment to reaching out to our international members," said Jim Frye, president and chair of the Association of Marina Industries, of which IMI is a training subsidiary. "ICOMIA represents recreational marine industry associations worldwide and acts as the voice of the industry. It fills an important role in the international community."
