Time to Execute the Plan

PlanOne of my favorite quotes from Henry Ford is, “Vision without execution is just hallucination.”

Now that we have a vision – the Alaska Maritime Workforce Development Plan – it is time to begin executing the plan.

On September 25, the Industry Advisory Committee which provides input into this plan met and discussed how to begin implementation of the Alaska Maritime Workforce Development Plan. Four objectives were identified as short term priorities and working groups were formed for each:

  1. Career Awareness, including a subgroup on K-12
  2. Vessel maintenance and repair
  3. Marine refrigeration
  4. Vessel engineering and licensing

If you are interested in becoming involved with the implementation of these short term priorities, or any other portion of the Plan, please contact Julie Decker.
