This month, MIASF participated in the Claim Your Future Showcase, hosted by the Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance and Broward Schools. This year, the event was virtual, rather than being held at the BB&T Center, but there were still almost 1,000 students who took part in the event. Megan Piggott, Director of Marketing & Workforce Development, hosted a marine industry virtual table and was able to promote the more than 149,000 job opportunities in the South Florida Marine Industry. It was a great opportunity to share with the students all of the different pathways into our industry as most of the kids who participated in the event are juniors and seniors beginning to make plans upon graduating.
