American Society of Naval Engineers Presents The Multi-Agency Craft Conference (MACC) 2011

The Multi-Agency Craft Conference (MACC) in Virginia provides a forum for open exchange and discussion about boats and craft between government agencies and the maritime community.

The primary focus is the dialog between the Department of Defense and other government agencies on common issues unique to boats and craft in their service. The types of craft discussed range from Army & Navy service craft to Navy and Coast Guard patrol boats to Naval Special Warfare and Marine Corps combatant craft. Craft types include RIBs, patrol and insertion craft, landing craft, utility craft and special purpose craft.

The Multi-Agency Craft Conference (MACC) serves as a way to capitalise on the joint nature of today's military environment. No service can afford to re-learn lessons that another service has already solved, whether it pertains to operations and tactics, an equipment solution, maintenance practices, or evaluating and implementing new technology. Each organisation has a valuable corporate background that can greatly assist other activities.

The Multi-Agency Craft Conference (MACC) leverages larger returns from the combined efforts of the relatively small boat communities in each service. Within each service, boats and craft remain low on the funding priority list and the Conference helps prevent different agencies from expending funds solving a common problem.
