November’s Member Connect was held on November 17th, and was a panel discussion held in The Flagship Room at the MIASF Office. The topic was marketing and we had four panelists as well as a moderator from different marketing specialties sharing their insight and knowledge. Bob Denison moderated the event, and our panelists included: Emily Burchwell (Safe Harbor Lauderdale Marine Center), Kirsten Corssen (Social Navigator), Nicole Golemi (Alison South Marketing), & Matt Ramirez (Informa Markets). We are extremely appreciative of everyone who brought items for our food drive to help the Children’s Diagnostic & Treatment Center stock their shelves before Thanksgiving. The event was extremely informative, and all of our panelists were able to provide a wealth of information for everybody who attended.

The MIASF team hopes everybody was able to share a happy and healthy Thanksgiving with family and friends! We look forward to celebrating with everyone at our holiday party, and closing out the year on a strong note.
The US Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 38 Plantation is on a mission to educate boaters. On November 13th they held a full boating safety class at the Flagship Room at the MIASF Office. Participants who complete the class will receive their Florida Safety Education ID Card which is recognized by the USCG and NASBLA. Flotilla 38 is committed to providing a monthly safe boating class and alternates locations between the MIASF Office and their base in Plantation. The January class will also be held at the MIASF office and dates will be announced soon once they are confirmed.
Special recognition needs to be given to Pete Gannon for his work with the Marine Magnet Program at New River Middle School. He is teaching the safe boating class to the 6th grade students in one-hour classes once a week. Additionally, he is teaching the 7th grade students and a few teachers through on an online learning platform. Thanks to his efforts and the entire team at Flotilla 38 there are more than 300 new safe boaters.
