According to the GMI Chairman, Mick Bettesworth, these international awards show that the vitality of education is recognized within the global marine industry. The financial aid positions will bring forth marina managers with high competence and skill that is valued in the industry. The grants also encourage a smooth distribution of knowledge across the globe. Further, these financial aid positions will ensure a two way benefit; on one hand the recipients will bring a new and different perspective to the course and on the other hand will take back the valuable knowledge and novel ideas etc.
Michael Glanville, MDL Area Manager in the UK was heard commenting on being awarded the Bellingham Marine Scholarship as a once in a lifetime opportunity and he has also marked it as a brilliant experience both personally and professionally. He has been the 2011 scholarship winner.
He further quotes that he would highly recommend that Marina Managers looking to develop their knowledge and skills attend an Advanced Marina Managers course.
Winners of the respective financial aid positions will be announced at the ICOMIA World Marinas Conference, 2-4 June in Istanbul, Turkey. Application forms for the BMF scholarship and the Bellingham Marine Scholarship are available online on the GMI website.
