TALL SHIPS AMERICA is pleased to announce that the 42nd Annual Conference on Sail Training and Tall Ships will take place in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on February 5 & 6, 2015. The conference will be preceded by the Safety Under Sail Forum and Education Under Sail Forum on February 4. A post-conference workshop will take place on Saturday & Sunday, February 7 & 8.
The 2015 conference, Fleet Maneuvers: Collaborating and Partnering to Best Advantage, will focus on how individual organizations and the industry as a whole can work with others toward common goals. With operational margins already razor-thin, how can the small, mission-driven educational enterprises at the core of our membership keep up, adapt, and reach their markets and succeed? The key may lie in assembling successful collaborations with other organizations, finding complementary strengths and capacities, and so enhancing the prospects for all. It takes a crew of diverse talents to sail a ship successfully on her appointed voyage.
This year’s conference will be held at the Sheraton Philadelphia Society Hill. Registration is NOT open yet but you can sign up to receive updates from the blog (see ‘Delivered to You’ on the right) or check on the conference page of the website.
