Hosted by Massachusetts Maritime Academy
October 27th through the 29th, the Massachusetts Maritime Academy (MMA), in partnership with the Maritime Administration (MARAD), will host the fifth annual Women on the Water (WOW) Conference in Buzzards Bay, MA. The Conference will bring together cadets from the Federal and State Merchant Marine Academies with professional women and men who are leaders in different sectors of the maritime industry.
