Happy New Year

It is a new year and many of us here at American Shore and Beach Association have great New Year News! Annie has been contracted to continue her work on Blue Flag and other projects for a full year. Brad and Leslie Pickel have joined ASBPA as the new Managing Directors. Derek Brockbank will be moving to Coastal States Organization as their new Executive Director.

Moving Forward

We have decided to postpone the National Workshop until Fall 2021 to allow for more participation and focus by existing and new staff. We will be hosting a series of mini meetings through out the year as teasers and hope you can join us!

Pilot Preparation

Potential Pilot beaches have submitted their Gap Analysis Documents and are awaiting the International Jury’s decision in April.

Criteria Update

Thank you for all your comments and participation in our Criteria Meetings! We have sent out the First Draft. We are working on the second draft with reasoning included to submit to the National Jury in February.
