Why We Formed

Addressing Issues that impact the Bottom Line

A National Voice 

NMEC was established in 2012 to provide a centralized, national voice for maritime workforce development and to address the workforce challenges plaguing our member yards and the industry as a whole, including
 

  • An aging labor pool

  • A lack of technically skilled workers 

  • A lack of defined, standardized skill-sets, curricula, credentials, and career paths for production crafts

  • High turnover due to the cyclical nature of the industry

  • Increasing competition from industry sectors scrambling to recruit the same workers with similar skill sets from dwindling labor pool

  • The lack of a national, cohesive brand and platform to expand the industry's marketing reach
