Come and visit with the ASTA Team!

Posted by Tall Ships America on January 7, 2009

Several times a year, the American Sail Training Association invites their members to gather and be heard. One instance is in November at the annual conference (more information here).

We also reach out our members on the Atlantic and Pacific Coasts and in the Great Lakes during the Regional Meetings.  These meetings are a smaller gathering of vessel operators, organizations, crew and captains, and are a way to reconnect with people who may have not been able to attend the conference. 

During the regional meetings, ASTA introduces new member programs and benefits, and invites attendees to share what is new and exciting in their organizations. This year’s schedule for the meetings is as follows:

January 23, 2009:  San Diego, California
Upper Deck of the Berkley, Maritime Museum of San Diego

March 6, 2009: Chicago, Illinois
