MRAA issues ‘call for solutions’

The Marine Retailers Association of the Americas is soliciting educational partnerships in a “call for solutions.” The group seeks solutions across all of its educational offerings, including Dealer Week and other initiatives.

“Some topics are perfectly suited for a live presentation at Dealer Week, and we’re excited to receive those suggestions,” Mike Davin, MRAA education director, said in a statement. “Other material, however, is more appropriate to a white paper or an in-depth online learning course. It’s all part of an ongoing process of dealer education throughout the year, so for 2019 we’re opening up our call to a greater variety of content.”

The MRAA staff and its education committee will be researching potential trainers, educators and other experts for its new conference, called Dealer Week, which is scheduled for Dec. 8-11 at the Tampa Convention Center in Tampa, Fla.
