Anchor membership is the association’s elite membership level that is comprised of chief decision makers within our industry. Each month, these members meet to discuss business relevant to not only our industry, but also our surrounding community and other industries. At this month’s Anchor Meeting, Millicent Pitts, CEO and Executive Director of Ocean Exchange attended the meeting as a guest speaker. Ocean Exchange’s mission is to help advance solutions in the field of sustainability. A few years ago, this event relocated from Savannah, GA to Fort Lauderdale, FL and takes place in the days leading up to FLIBS. This event brings together the best and brightest innovators who have working prototypes that promote sustainability. There are two $100k prizes that are awarded, as well as more than $45k awarded to college-level applicants to help commercialize these prototypes. This year’s event saw more than 140 applicants and the final presentations as well as other events will take place at the NSU Broward Center of Innovation on October 24-26.
