PORT TOWNSEND, Wash. — Things are looking good for the Port Townsend Marine Trades Association, according to President Rick Petrykowski.
Petrykowski, in an address to the Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce, said the group has grown to 50 members with 12 business affiliates and 26 nonvoting members.
The association is made up of maritime workers, including boat builders.
According to an article in the Peninsula Daily News, Petrykowski said the association has launched a marketing effort to bring outside business into the group. Other marketing efforts include social media, a mass-market campaign into Coastal British Colombia and possibly into Oregon, and an updated website.
“We’re a diverse cross section of dedicated men and women who run businesses in the East Jefferson County marine trades,” said Petrykowski, co-owner of Taku Marine in the Port of Port Townsend.
