Each year, ACA organises a speaker from an organisation providing support for the local communities in which their Conference is being held.

The Victorian Regional Channels Authority which manages all commercial navigation in the port waters of Geelong, will sponsor the breakfast.

“We have had some wonderful local speakers attend our Conference breakfasts who have been able to make an important connection between our delegates and the destination” said Jill Abel, CEO of the Association.  “As the Coast Guard plays such an important role in the boating industry, we felt this was an incredibly relevant presentation for our Conference in Geelong.”

A volunteer organisation, the Coast Guard’s main role is education and training around boating and using the water safely, but their other very important responsibility is search and rescue.  Their distinctive yellow vessels respond to numerous emergency marine incidents each year such as marine fire and medical evacuation.

The Coast Guard also delivers vessel tracking and monitoring and provides public education courses as well as overseeing all licencing.

“Our Friday breakfasts are a wonderful finale to our conferences and help to inspire, motivate and educate our delegates” continued Abel.

ACA will make a donation to the Geelong Coast Guard which will go toward their training programs.

ACAs 23rd annual conference and AGM will be held at the Novotel Geelong from September 4-6, 2019. Registrations are still open and can be made at
