Ed Lofgren, chairman for the Educational Trust and a champion for workforce development within the boating industry for close to 50 years, has been instrumental with both the video and website.

Lofgren said, “Our industry is severely challenged by a nationwide shortage of marine technicians. This shortage represents a major growth inhibitor in our region; there are hundreds of vacancies for boat and motor technicians right here in Massachusetts. Our video and new website encourages people to join our industry and help to fill these well-paying, recession-proof, enjoyable positions.”
