The mission of the new group is to "contribute a fresh, unique resource of thoughts and ideas to the MRAA board for the continued efforts to improve and grow the association and the boating industry for the next generations."

MRAA is looking for nominees for the advisory board, which will meet as an individual group twice a year and present ideas and findings to the MRAA board of directors.

Nominees can be up to 40 years old, must hold a position of significance in a dealership, and must have a minimum of five years of marine experience.

Nominations will be accepted through June 20. For information, contact Paul Nickel at Pride Marine Group, or click here.
