The VMA is proud to announce that applications are now being accepted for the first cohort of the Maritime Leadership Certification Program. Approved by the VMA Board of Directors and shared in the September Maritime Bulletin, this program has been designed with Future Leader members in mind, however it is open to VMA members “newer” to the maritime industry with no age restriction.
Those who complete the program will leave with a comprehensive understanding of the maritime industry, a network of key industry stakeholders, and critical leadership skills. Admission is by application only.
Applications for the first cohort will be due by Monday, November 30, 2018, participants will be announced in December, and the program will begin in January 2019.
Thereafter, applications will accepted in April of each year beginning April 2019, and the program will follow a June-May schedule. The first class of the Maritime Leadership Certification Program will graduate in May 2020 as we honor VMA’s one-hundredth anniversary and celebrate our future.
While completion of the program is possible in one year, participants have two years to complete the certification program.
An information session is being held prior to the November 8th Maritime Mixer at 4:30 for individuals or company leadership interested in learning more about the Maritime Leadership Certification Program.
