National Marine Propeller Association debuts new website

The National Marine Propeller Association recently launched a new website.

The National Marine Propeller Association, a trade group representing U.S. propeller repair companies and propeller-related product and service providers, recently launched a new website.

The site seeks to serve as a tool for members of the association and a resource for boaters looking for professional repair shops and other propeller-related information. The new website also features the trade group’s new logo.

The updated design is part of the 23-year-old NMPA’s effort to rebrand and reinvigorate itself to better serve its members.

“We embarked on several important initiatives in early 2015, the first being to appoint a new managing director for NMPA and the second to rebrand the association as part of a larger effort to update and enhance the NMPA member programs and benefits,” NMPA president and Mercury Propellers product/program manager Dave DeWitt said in a statement. “In April we announced the appointment of Gordon Connell and Connell Communications as the managing director and association management company for NMPA, and today we are pleased to announce the launch of our new website.”

The design allows visitors to the site to search for professional repair shops, using the member directory or interactive map. Additionally, it offers a moderated public forum for boaters to interact and pose questions about propeller repair. For members, it provides secure access to their profile, a resource library, a member-only discussion forum and a single source of compiled industry news feeds.

“I’m excited and looking forward to working to grow NMPA to its full potential. The new logo and website are just the start of several plans for the association,” Connell said. “Next we are focusing on the annual convention scheduled for Oct. 22-24 to build on what has historically been a valuable opportunity for propeller repair businesses to gather for informative sessions, networking and business-to-business development.”
