The International Superyacht Society (ISS) is happy to communicate it has added more panellists in its main presentation during the Society’s Annual Membership Meeting & Breakfast on Wednesday 26 October 2011 from 8:00-10:00 am in the Grande View Room at the Bahia Mar, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA.
The breakfast is sponsored by Marsh, the perpetual ISS Silver Supporter of the event. The Annual Meeting is open to ISS membership. There is a $25.00 entrance fee for those wishing to attend who are not ISS members; however, those wishing to become members may apply the ticket value toward annual membership dues.
The event will begin with an update on MLC 2006 presented by Roger Towner, chief examiner of MCA. Immediately following brief business synopses regarding ISS education and recognition programs, collaborative initiatives and a budget review, all attendees will benefit from the expertise of social media panellists Sarah Bensimon (IGY Marinas), Kathy Kennedy (Ferretti Group), Julie Perry (BLASTMedia), Brett Keil (The Maritime Executive), and Scott Lockman (Marsh Private Client Services), with moderator Diane M. Byrne (MegayachtNews.com) orchestrating the proceedings. Plenty of time will be devoted to Q&A.
