YBAA Universities Wrap Up

The Providence and Annapolis YBAA Universities attracted almost 200 participants for a full day of learning valuable educational information as well as important networking opportunities. Thanks to Yacht World, our CPYB Sponsors, and our YBAA U Partners, we were able to offer these events at the very low YBAA member cost of $49 per person. Where else could you earn 10 CPYB recertification credits, learn important industry information, enjoy lunch and have a chance to win valuable raffle prizes all for such a great price?

Attendees were able to listen and interact with our presenters who included, John Adey, President of ABYC; David Bohonnon and Steven Clark, Bohannon Law Firm in Providence; Dirk Schwenk, Baylaw LLC, in Annapolis; Katy Judge and Courtney Chalmers, YachtWorld/BoatWizard/SoldBoats, the broker panel discussion moderated by Brian Commette in Providence and Denise Hanna in Annapolis and our rousing and motivating keynote address by Margaret Podlich, President, BoatUS. We sincerely thank all our presenters and appreciate their taking valuable time from their schedules to volunteer and present at the YBAA U events.

We would also like to congratulate Hal Slater (Providence) and Cooper Clark (Annapolis) who were the winners of the grand raffle prizes, a Sharper Image Photo Drone donated by YachtWorld. Thanks goes to all our other raffle prize donators as well including Yacht Closer, Gowrie, New England Marine Documentation, ABYC, Gill, Chesapeake Bay Magazine, Sterling Acceptance, Weems & Plath and
