Maritime Works: An Alaska Careers Partnership

Maritime Works (formerly referred to as the Industry Advisory Committee) is a network of committed individuals who participate in advancing maritime workforce development, with the support of their organizations. Maritime Works is a “virtual organization,” and a “member” is someone who shows up, provides sustained interest, and helps advance implementation of the Plan.

There are several principles that have been effectively used by Maritime Works.

  • Collaboration is key to achieve success. Industries, training/education service providers, governmental agencies, legislative offices and potential funders have all been working effectively together.
  • An organizational structure that relies on a chair and steering committee to provide opportunities for all the participants to come together and address issues in an effective manner.
  • An independent organization provides coordination assistance.
  • Maritime Works meets only as needed.
