MASKGI Spring Meeting 4/21

April 21 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free
Bates College geology class on Yarmouth Island

The MASKGI Spring Meeting will be held on 4/21 at Nanuq Kayak on the waterfront in Portland, Maine. We’ll distribute an agenda shortly, but we’re looking forward to talking about training programs (pool sessions, WFAA, incident management) and new pro deals, any relevant Guide Board issues coming up on training season, and marketing opportunities for guides. If you’re interested in speaking on any topic related to guiding or outfitting, get in touch! We’ll hold the meeting at Nanuq Kayak, and have set it for the early afternoon so as not to conflict with an Ocean Skills class being held at the MITA office in the morning. Coffee and donuts for the meeting, and plenty of watering holes nearby for an after-meeting snack or drink!

Here is a draft agenda, although we’ll keep it fluid to respond to issues that folks may bring for discussion:
