Marine Industry Association of Central Florida Helps Dealers Thrive with MRAA Membership

MINNEAPOLIS, May 16, 2023 – The Marine Retailers Association of the Americas (MRAA) announces that it has added 15 new Bronze Members because the Board of Directors of the Marine Industry Association of Central Florida (MIACF) approved a new benefit for all MIACF Members that includes a free, 1-year membership to the MRAA.

“The Marine Industry Association of Central Florida, like all the other Marine Trade Associations across the country, and MRAA share the same mission,” said Joe Lewis, MIACF Board Past President and Owner of Mount Dora Boating Center & Marina. “We all exist to provide resources for the benefit of our members. Giving our members an MRAA Bronze Membership is the most cost-effective way for MIACF to provide our members with world-class resources and content, while also helping them grow their businesses. It’s a win-win for all.”

MIACF Members receive access to MRAA’s core benefits, resources and partner programs, providing each business with ample opportunities for growth and improvement. MRAA Bronze Membership includes one free online course from MRAATraining, member-exclusive resources, discounts on MRAA’s annual Dealer Week Conference and Expo, Certification and the Certified Pre-Owned Boat Program. In addition, they gain exclusive access to legislative updates, guidance on common pain points and cost-saving and revenue-generating benefits.
