At the end of June, the National Marine Manufacturers Association is participating in an annual meeting for school guidance counselors, the ASCA Annual Conference in Boston. At the event, the NMMA plans to market the boating industry as a career option with a presentation, Choose Your Workspace: Explore Careers in the Boating Industry. According to the NMMA’s Currents newsletter, the conference will attract more than 2,500 school guidance counselors from throughout the United States.
The NMMA is looking for industry partners to contribute with donations of giveaway items that are applicable to educators.
On September 30, the NMMA will host a full-day super session focusing on workforce development at the International BoatBuilders Exhibition and Conference in Tampa. The Challenges & Solutions, Workforce Development Super Session at IBEX will have a limit of 100 attendees. Registration opens in May and companies interested in sponsoring the session can click here.
