Past Events September 26, 2018

About 40 MIASF members and guests met and mingled at the monthly Maritime Monday held at Shooters Waterfront on September 10th. Warm breezes off the Intracoastal Waterway and a stunning sunset were the backdrop to another successful member event.

Last month MIASF hosted its first NetWORK with a Purpose event with military veteran job seekers from Mission United and marine industry businesses. The event drew more than 30 job seekers and 50 company representatives and included a short program with useful information for both sides. So far, MarineMax, Dockside Corporate Services, and Compass Logistics & Marine LLC have reported hiring employees from the event, and several other companies have been in the interview process with candidates they met that night. IMPORTANT NOTE: Compass Logistic Marine was approved for a Veteran’s Florida Grant for On-the-Job-Training (OJT) and will also apply for a tax credit within 30 days.
