71st Annual Training Conference & Trade Show
September 4 – 6, 2019
Embassy Suites, Sacramento
Come join your peers in Sacramento for the 71st Annual Harbormasters Training Conference for three days of networking, learning and fun!
This year’s conference will feature expert presenters providing solutions for the issues that can make our lives miserable; a behind-the-scenes tour of the Sacramento Marina; visits with your legislators and regulators; plus great food and entertainment.
We’ll have experts at the conference who can help you address everything from sea level rise mitigation to preparing for the next large tsunami; from keeping your organization’s website complaint with the ever-growing nightmare of state mandated regulations to understanding what is the best insurance package for your marina and tenants; from making the right hire to creating a high performance team.
Get together with your friends and colleagues on Thursday night for the Annual Awards ceremony where outstanding members of the ports and harbors community are honored for outstanding and exceptional accomplishments.
Discuss upcoming harbor projects and find innovative solutions to persistent problems by taking time to visit the conference sponsors and vendors in the Trade Show area in the hotel. They always share the latest technological advancements and help you find money-saving ways to get things done at your facility.
