What better way to enjoy winter in Southeastern New England than getting together with a bunch of sail trainers and talking about something that we are all so passionate about – tall ships and sail training. Lucky for you, Professional Development Grants are still available.
We’ve made this conference about YOU. Without the next generation of sail trainers, maritime traditions fade away, and tall ships languish and rot at the dock… all because you waited until it was too late to apply for the Professional Development Grant and your career slipped through your callused fingers. Sniffle.
But it’s not too late- Apply now! We’ve even extended the hotel block until tomorrow (Friday, 1.13) at 5pm. After that time, we cannot guarantee that the rates won’t go up or that there will be rooms available.
This conference is an amazing opportunity to meet and talk to all of our member organizations. We have incredible presenters, spiffy conference bags, a wicked fun band for the awards night dinner (!!), the Marriott Hotel as a swank venue, and attendees who love to talk about what they do. But we can only take it so far, it’s up to you to take the next step and apply for the grant.
Love tall ships and want to know how to forge a career as a professional sailor? Bring your resume and attend our Job Fair on Tuesday morning. Dozens of representatives from our member organizations will be on hand and will be eager to speak to you. Check out the Crew Track Agenda to see what else we are offering for the crew that attend.
