Registration under way for National Marina Day

It's time to start planning for National Marina Day, which this year falls on Saturday, June 9.

Each year, marinas open their doors to their communities to show off their facilities, introduce non-boaters to the boating lifestyle, explain how marinas help protect the waterfront environments in which they sit and celebrate the industry.

Marinas can click here to get started and register their marinas as a participating facility. Once registered, marina operators can access a resource guide that will provide details about how to celebrate the event and help give marinas the recognition they deserve.

Last year, 150 marinas registered their event and, as an incentive, the Association of Marina Industries is holding three drawings among registered facilities.

Winners will receive: in April, one free registration for either next year's International Marina & Boatyard Conference or the International Marina Institute’s fall drystack conference; in May, a free copy of the AMI’s Marina Operations Manual; in June, a free one-year AMI membership.

National Marina Day is managed by AMI, a non-profit membership organization dedicated to the needs of marinas nationwide.
