The Marine Retailers Association of the Americas announced that Dominion Marine Media renewed its support of the association as a partner member and that the MRAA is partnering with Priority One Financial Services to create a new member benefit for its Rewards Program.

Dominion, an MRAA partner for a number of years, most recently announced that it will co-produce the upcoming Marine Retail University event series with the association. It also serves as a partner for the annual Marine Dealer Conference & Expo.

“Dominion’s mission and values are very closely connected with those of the MRAA, as they carry and demonstrate an intense interest in helping to further the success of today’s marine dealers,” MRAA president Matt Gruhn said in a statement.

As for Priority One, MRAA said the company will provide association members with a host of opportunities. For MRAA members who partner with Priority One, $5 will be given for every customer loan that is facilitated through Priority One. These “BonusBucks” will be paid on a quarterly basis.

Priority One also will provide MRAA members with a number of other services, including free training webinars related to finance and insurance management best practices.

“We have been a part of the marine industry for 25 years, and like the MRAA are committed to seeing it grow and thrive,” Priority One president Heather Mariscal said in a statement. “By participating in the MRAA Rewards Program we hope to bring the benefits of our services to more marine dealers to help them move more units and earn more income.”
