Marine Association AGM has new date
The Antigua and Barbuda Marine Association, the organization who represent the yachting industry in Antigua and Barbuda (ABMA), under the leadership of chairman Franklyn Braithwaite would like to announce that it’s yearly Annual General Meeting will take place on Thursday 15th May 2012.
Chairman Braithwaite states "After careful consideration the board of the ABMA made a decision that it would move the yearly AGM from its normal slot in January. This is to help facilitate business owners focusing on their international customers who are on island during that time and preparation for the ongoing season."
The new May slot was agreed as the ideal date as it falls after the end of all of the international regattas and show season in Antigua and before the majority of organizations begin their overseas marketing for the following season. People invited to attend are current members of the ABMA along with any people or businesses interested in joining the association, or with an interest in the industry and its future.
The association are currently working on a 2013 Marine and Yachting Event Calendar which will be available to anyone wishing to promote the destination overseas, as well as with the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority and the Ministry of Tourism on continued yachting destination promotions over the coming months.
