About The Conference

The All Hands on Deck conference will feature speakers and panel discussions addressing broad areas of maritime workforce training. The two-day conference will address opportunities to enhance and expand maritime training, marine technology, ship building and repair, as well as port management, workforce training, and education throughout the country. This year, the All Hands on Deck conference will welcome our maritime high schools with special sessions just for them.

Join us to collaborate with community and technical colleges, K-12 educators, MARAD, US Coast Guard and industry partners to reach the goal of growing and sustaining a world-class maritime workforce for the years ahead!
