Leadership in Action
Published on February 8th, 2016
The Sailing Leadership Forum 2016 in San Diego, CA on February 4-6 offered a unique experience for all types of sailors to connect on important and relevant issues on all aspects of our sport. With an underlying theme of how the sport can be handed off to the next generation, the Chesapeake Bay Region presents an example of what one area is already doing to better guarantee the future of sailing.
The 6th Annual Marine & Maritime Career Fair on February 27 in Annapolis, MD provides school-aged young people the opportunity to network with professionals and entrepreneurs, attend special sessions with mentors from across marine and maritime professions, learn about the education and training needed for career pathways (and even win door prizes).
“We are committed to educate students on pathways into marine and maritime careers,” said Tim Wilbricht, Chairman of the 2016 Career Fair. “Students from Maryland and surrounding states have a multitude of job opportunities where they can make a good living and work in the communities where they grew up. Economic growth across the marine and maritime fields needs a solid workforce and it is our job to educate them early and often about the many opportunities.”
Fifty Exhibitors will share their knowledge and expertise about careers connected to the Chesapeake Bay and the oceans, rivers and lakes spanning the marine sciences, naval architecture, marine trades and the maritime industry.
