MRAA Unveils New Legislative Tracker Made Possible by Diamond Ambassador Members

WASHINGTON, D.C., June 17, 2024 – The Marine Retailers Association of the Americas unveils a new legislative tracker, made possible by the support of MRAA’s Diamond Ambassadors. This innovative tool highlights legislation the MRAA is tracking and advocating for or against on behalf of the marine industry. This new addition to the website provides MRAA members the ability to take a deep dive into the legislative priorities of the MRAA and see, firsthand, how the MRAA is working to support their businesses and the overall recreational boating industry.

MRAA Unveils Legislative Tracker with Diamond Ambassador Support

The legislative tracker, located at, is powered by public affairs software Quorum. The tracker is divided into state and federal legislation, with the state tracker featuring a map to allow members to view what the MRAA is tracking in their state. The tool also allows members to filter and sort state and federal legislation by topic, position and status. The MRAA made the investment in this new software with the support of our Diamond Ambassador Members, including MarineMax who was both an inaugural Diamond Member in 2023 and has signed on again for 2024. Diamond Ambassador Members at MRAA fuel advocacy work and the Government Relations team. (Learn more about becoming a Diamond Ambassador Member here.)

“We’re thrilled to be able to give MRAA members a clearer view into the day-to-day work that MRAA’s advocacy team does to support our members and the industry overall,” says Mike Sayre, MRAA Director of Government Relations. “In addition to this new resource, Quorum allows us to find, review, and take positions on more legislation and regulatory actions around the country and at the federal level faster and more efficiently than before, helping to keep our members informed on the issues that matter to them.”

Since integrating Quorum into the the Government Relations Team workflow, MRAA has honed its ability to track and analyze legislation and regulations that may negatively impact marine retailers. This proactive approach allows the team to engage with lawmakers early in the process, addressing potential impacts on marine retailers before they become critical issues. Additionally, Quorum’s ability to monitor social media, news and other relevant sources provides the team with a thorough understanding of the political landscape.

“Quorum has made it easier to identify and track legislation, allowing MRAA to proactively protect marine retailers from harmful policies at both state and federal levels. Each day, we use Quorum alerts to stay ahead of any legislative or regulatory proposals that could negatively impact our members,” says Chad Tokowicz, MRAA Government Relations Manager. “Every morning is spent checking alerts generated by Quorum to ensure that we are on top of any and all legislative or regulatory proposals that may negatively impact your business.”

The MRAA’s Government Relations Team adoption of Quorum was only made possible through our Diamond Ambassador Members, whose dues directly support our organizations government relations work. We cannot thank our Diamond Ambassador Members enough for their support. Without them we would not have the ability to take our advocacy work to next level. It is no secret that our Diamond Ambassador Members believe in the importance of advocacy for marine retailers, and the MRAA Government Relations Team is dedicated to fighting for the health of your business day in and day out.
