The Marine Industry Certified Dealership Program received an excellence award from the Midwest Society of Association Executives.

The trade group presented the MICD Program with its 2015 Award of Excellence June 11 at a ceremony during its 59th annual meeting in Minneapolis.

Since the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas assumed program management in 2013-14, the program has experienced a 50 percent-plus increase in participation.

"We couldn’t be more proud to take home this award,” MICD program director Sonja Moseley said in a statement. "The effort the program has put forth over the last year and a half exemplifies teamwork at its best; MICD team members worked hard in cooperation with one another to bring the industry’s desires related to program evolution to fruition. And it’s very rewarding to be recognized for these efforts. The MSAE award further underscores the value of the program and what benefits it holds for recreational marine dealers.”
