Chilloa Young retires from the Maine Fishermen’s Forum

At the 2023 Forum we celebrated Chilloa’s 25 years of dedication as the Forum Coordinator.  She will be retiring from the position on June 30th at which time the helm will be turned over to our new Executive Director, Kathleen Gilbert.

Chilloa came to the position of Coordinator after serving on the Forum’s Board of Directors. Her experience with the Forum and her knowledge of and dedication to the well-being of the commercial fishing and aquaculture industries made her a natural for the position.

President Steve Train said, “Chilloa has, with distinction, managed the complicated job of organizing one of the largest fishing industry trade shows in New England, staffing the Board of Directors, and assuring that the annual event runs smoothly. Her organizational skills and dedication to excellence are extraordinary. She will be missed.”
