28 Remain. Who will be chosen?

Posted by Tall Ships America on January 4, 2012

You asked, pleaded, appealed and implored us to make the conference more accessible to ALL of our members, especially those on the low end of the industry pay scale.  We heard you.

In partnership with Maritime Simulation Institute, we did it …and still have 28 more spots left for all eligible crew and sail trainers to apply for the Professional Development Grant Program.  You can attend all three days of the conference for $100!

The criteria is SO EASY –

  • Be a Tall Ships America Associate Level or Crew Level member in good standing.
    (Not a member? Become one now!) 
  • Demonstrate employment as a paid or volunteer crewmember (1st – 4th Mate, Bosun, Engineer, AB, OS, Deckhand, Educator) aboard a Tall Ships America member vessel(s) for not less than 9 months within past 24 months. 

This year’s conference is all about Crew Development . The conference will explore how training, safety, public engagement, and youth enrichment can be harnessed to develop the crews, career opportunities, and business systems necessary to prepare the Next Watch and will offer a track of sessions aimed at working crew who desire to sustain a seafaring career. 

Don’t let this opportunity to attend the Tall Ships America’s annual conference for $100 (!!) go to waste. Without your support for this grant, we won’t be able to offer something like this again. You asked. We listened.  Now it’s up to you.  Apply today.
