VOLUNTEERS... “Many hands make for easy work”. As we get within a month of this event we will be asking for help.
SPONSORS… See attached sponsorship application. This is a low cost high impact sponsorship opportunity for a no-stress, fun and festive event designed to showcase naval engineering, shipbuilding, ship repair and our region’s rich maritime heritage to the general public. It also supports a great cause. Once we cover costs for construction materials and such, 100% of net proceeds directly fund ASNE mission areas such as Engineering Scholarships, STEM grants and professional development programs.
