MRAA Names Education Champions


The Marine Retailers Association of the Americas said three more organizations have attained its second-highest level of membership, Education Champions., 700Credit and Global Marine Insurance have committed to the program, MRAA said in separate statements last week.

Education Champions support the MRAA’s educational programming, including Dealer Week, the association’s conference and expo, and other training and content.

“Boatline aims to be a partner for dealers providing both marketing solutions and educational resources to support their business,” Lori Stacy, CEO of Trader Interactive, the parent company of Boatline, said in a statement. “Partnering with MRAA through the Education Championship program allows us to share information that will expand knowledge of the industry and keep dealers competitive in the marketplace.”

Founded in 2000, 700Credit is known as one of the largest credit report and compliance vendors, and it extends its services to marine dealers. Global Marine Insurance is a long-time MRAA partner.
