MBIA headquarters moves to boating community

The Michigan Boating Industries Association has moved its headquarters from Livonia to Commerce Township.

Commerce Township is a strong boating community in Oakland County. The county has 10 percent of all registered boats in the state, more than any other county.

The MBIA has always been located in southeast Michigan, positioned for easy access to Lansing for its lobbying efforts and Detroit, home of the Detroit Boat Show.

“MBIA has enjoyed its Livonia location for more than 22 years with much success, but our new location brings us closer to members, potential members and more boaters, while still having easy access to our three boat shows, Lansing, and members around the state for regional meeting and visits,” said MBIA executive director Nicki Polan in a statement.

“The building also gives us first-floor space to host meetings and educational sessions for members and boaters,” Polan said.
