Last year over 160 yacht sales professionals attended the one-day event in Annapolis on July 23 and Providence on July 25. Also in attendance were YBAA U Sponsors, Partners and CPYB Sponsors who provide generous financial support for the YBAA U’s and other YBAA programs such as CPYB.
YBAA's annual YBAA University (YBAA U) events, thanks to our Sponsors and Partners, are offered each summer to providing yacht sales professionals with full-day educational/informational programs. These programs are conducted by industry experts and include updated information on the YBAA MLS system, “Tips, Tools and Tactics” broker expert panels, technology and sales tool insights, timely legal updates, ABYC delivered yacht systems and technical presentations, and valuable peer-to-peer networking. and For this year’s 100 Anniversary, a special keynote address by none other than Gary Jobson will be delivered during the events and with a cocktail reception following the day’s activities. In addition, CPYB brokers earn 10 education recertification credits towards the 30 recertification credits required to recertify every 3 years.
Early bird registration opens on April 20, 2020. Space is limited so don’t miss early bird registration. Stay tuned for additional information.
