Here is a little bit more information about the STI/ASTA joint conference this November in Halifax, Nova Scotia. It will be an awesome way to meet fellow sail trainers and sailors from all over the world. It promises to be informative, inspiring and, most of all, fun.
Sail Trainers: Best Practices – Why we do it and how we do it.
Host Ports: Working Together – measuring and maximizing the benefits of partnering with the sail training industry.
The theme for the Sail Training Program content will be ‘Best Practices – why we do it and how we do it’. This will include workshops on subjects such as media relations, medicine at sea, youth work, State funding, and navigating the regulatory seas. The theme for the Host Port Program content will be ‘Working together – measuring and maximising the benefits of partnering with the sail training industry’. This will include workshops on subjects such as recruiting trainees, media case studies, corporate hospitality and economic impact studies.
The conference will be preceded by a ‘Port to Port Day’ on Thursday November 13, which will provide opportunities for host port delegates to network with other ports and representatives of the port business community in Halifax.
Full details of the conference and online registration will be available on the ASTA website (http://www.sailtraining.org/)
and on the Sail Training International website (http://www.sailtraininginternational.org/) beginning June 1.
