Let me ask your questions

If you missed it, MRAA just named the manufacturers who have accepted the invitation to be on the “Industry Leaders Panel” at the upcoming MRAA National Convention. It is, without a doubt, the largest and most prestigious group of manufacturers ever assembled for a panel at this annual convention in Las Vegas.

I will have the privilege of serving as Panel Moderator. As such, I’ll be asking the panel the questions – YOUR QUESTIONS if you’ll give them to me. So, I’m using this Blog today to ask you to provide me with any questions you would ask these industry leaders if you were the Moderator.

You can get your questions to me in any of these 3 ways: (1) Fax me at LEMTA, (440) 899-5013; (2) E-mail me at LEMTA@aol.com; or (3) post your question here in the Blog comments. 

Of course, I will not identify the author (assuming I even know) of any question asked, and I can’t use a question that would require a panelist to reveal his company’s proprietary information.

Other than that, the door is wide open for you to be part of an interesting dialogue whether you’re at the Convention in person or not (and I think every dealer should attend this outstanding convention.) Yes, following the Convention, I will report on the answers given by the panelists in this Blog space.

Now, here is the Industry Leaders Panel that will field your questions. John Dorton, Mastercraft; David Slikkers, Tiara/Pursuit; Phil Dyskow, Yamaha; Duane Kuck, Regal; Roch Lambert, BRP; Kevin Riem, Crownline; Dusty McCoy, Brunswick; Roger Cloutir, Genmar; Clint Moore, Volvo; Jim Lane, Chapparral; and Bruce VanWagoner, GE.

The MRAA Convention is slated for Nov. 27-29. I urge all dealers to register at www.mraa.com.

However, I will be accepting your questions for the Panel only through next Thursday, Nov. 1. So, don’t put it off – get those questions to me now, please.
