They are also soliciting input for conference content: "Whether you are currently a cadet, new to the maritime industry, or have been around since Davy Jones, we invite you to provide input to the 2011 conference.

This year’s conference will bring together cadets from the seven maritime academies and senior professionals who are leaders in various sectors of the maritime industry, according to the press release. Materials say the event provides an excellent opportunity for the cadets to learn more about the exciting careers that are open to them directly from successful mariners and maritime executives, as well as to hear about the current issues affecting the maritime industry. It is also an excellent opportunity for the cadets and maritime professionals alike to meet and network with others in the maritime industry.
