The 30th annual Marine Trades Association of Maryland fall conference has a new format this year. The conference this year is Sept. 15 at Port Annapolis Marina in Annapolis.
The conference offers three parallel sessions: operator training that offers training on Marine Travelifts, fork lifts or Con-o-lift hydraulic trailers; customer service training that focuses on concerns of the marine industry and about using social networking technology; and a session on understanding the impact of the Clean Water Act on marine businesses.
"In the past, we have tried to give a little bit of everything to a diverse membership. In today's economy, we thought it better to put together a conference that offers three choices and ensures the participant will come away with practical knowledge," said George Dunigan, MTAM board member, conference chair and local Interlux Paint representative, in a statement.
The cost for operator training is between $125 and $150. The customer service and Clean Water Act sessions are $50 and include lunch.
Following the morning sessions, the group will be transported by water-taxi to the Annapolis Maritime Museum for lunch and networking.
