Series 2 is scheduled for May 2022, with a topic to be announced.

“Because this was a virtual event, we were able to bring in panelists from around the world and around the industry,” John Adey, president of ABYC, said in statement. “All of these experts volunteered their time, and the event was free, thanks to the Coast Guard’s nonprofit grant program. This is intended to be a series, and we look forward to covering a new topic later this spring.”

In addition, consider registering for ABYC’s fifth annual Marine Law Symposium, “Product, Professional and Personal Liability,” scheduled for Jan. 11, 2022, in Charleston, S.C.

An early bird registration discount of $349 is available until Dec. 1; later registration is $449.

ABYC said it will offer refunds for cancelations before Dec. 13.
