Noon to Noon: A Record Run
Fine tuning programs, operations and crew for maximum success

Our annual conference will be held in Erie, PA this year, home of the US Brig Niagara and the Erie Maritime Museum. As always, we could not be more excited to host our members,  hear what has been happening in our industry and see what exciting things we have planned.

Like last year, we will be doing Professional Developments Grants to help crew attend our conference for $100. Space is limited and you must be a current Associate Level or Crew Level member. Not a member? Sign up here and be sure to read the criteria to see if you are eligible.

Head on over to the Registration Info page for hotel accomodations, getting to Erie, a preliminary agenda, Exhibitor Opportunities, and the Call for Papers.  

Also, be sure to sign up for the Conference Blog where we will be posting sessions, speakers and bios leading up February.

Get excited for Erie!

Erie fun fact of the day – Erie means “raccoon”, the Erie tribe is sometimes referred to as the Cat nation, the raccoon being a wild cat that appears as the main figure on the Erie totem pole.                       Source:
