Dear Friends Of Our Working Waterfront:
Please join me on Thursday, July 12, 5:30 PM, at the Northwest Maritime Center (NWMC) for the release of our “Economic Impact Study for the Maritime Sector of Jefferson County” commissioned by the Port Townsend Marine Trades Association (PTMTA) and presented by John Martin, PhD, author of our study.
Spurred on by the national trend of gentrification of historical working waterfronts, the PTMTA worked with Martin Associates to document the value and importance of the marine trade industries in Jefferson County.
The evening will be hosted by Jake Beattie, Executive Director of the NWMC, and myself, Chris Sanok. Our speakers will include Joshua Berger, Governor Inslee’s Maritime Sector Lead at the Washington State Department of Commerce who will give an update on the governor’s Maritime Blue initiative, Washington State’s strategy for a sustainable maritime industry.
All who are interested in the future of the working waterfront and related industries in Jefferson County are invited to attend and show their support. Refreshments begin @ 5:30.
If you’re unable to attend in person, you can watch the live stream of the presentation on the PTMTA’s Facebook page.
Best regards,
Chris Sanok PTMTA Board Chairman

P.S. So we can anticipate how many chairs to put out, please confirm that you are coming by July 11th. Email or call 360.385.3628 x111.
