Young Leaders Advisory Council
The MRAA Young Leader Advisory Council exists to elevate the boating industry for both consumers and stakeholders through conscientious involvement with the MRAA as young marine professionals. With a fresh perspective, YLAC members are ambassadors who aspire to influence the business, shape future initiatives, and evolve into future industry leaders.
The mission of the YLAC is to supplement and support the mission of the Board of Directors of the MRAA. YLAC provides guidance as to the current state of the marine retailers’ day-to-day operations, both in challenges and opportunities. YLAC strives to set the example in identifying, inspiring, recruiting and onboarding key younger generation members to participate in the association, facilitating the future growth and success of the MRAA.
