The Maritime Administration and the Maine Maritime Academy will host the third annual “Women on the Water” conference on October 15-17, 2009 on the campus of the Maine Maritime Academy in Castine, Maine.  Each year, this event brings midshipmen and cadets attending America's maritime academies together with some of the most successful members of the maritime industry to discuss current issues.

The conference, which welcomes all those with an interest in the maritime industry, will feature discussions on a variety of issues affecting the maritime trades and industry such as, human factors (e.g. fatigue, health, and criminalization), industry trends, emerging employment opportunities, regulatory changes, and piracy.  Attendees will not only learn about the industry through the eyes of successful women and men, but will begin to build relations that will ensure success in their careers.  They will also be able to interact and network with the present and future leaders of the maritime industry.
