Staff

The small but mighty staff is made up of permanent and seasonal positions (from March through November). All seasonal positions are professional crew on the A.J. Meerwald. The United States Coast Guard requires licenses and staffing levels that call for licensed mariners for seven day per week operations. BCB requires its shipboard officers (Captain, Relief Captain, and 1st Mate) to be licensed by the United States Coast Guard. Deck positions require a degree in a relevant field and teaching experience.
BCB staff members are chosen for their education, depth of experience, broad base of skills and their passion for and commitment to the region’s history, culture and environment. The team works together to implement Bayshore Center’s strategic vision. Each staff person carries out his or her respective responsibilities in the context of the organization’s inclusive style. Most major staff functions have either an ad hoc group of local “experts” and/or interested volunteers to draw on for support or a formal committee that assists in accomplishing the tasks.
