The National Marine Bankers Association issued a call for professional presentations at its 32nd annual conference, which is set for Nov. 6-8 at the Westin La Cantera Resort in San Antonio.

"We are reaching out to the industry for presenters and speakers who have services, products or ideas that can help the marine industry through retail and/or wholesale lending opportunities," NMBA president Karen Trostle said in a statement.

"We spend a great deal of time on the content for the conference and we want to be sure it speaks to our audience. In order to do that, we need to hear from boat and yacht manufacturers and dealers, as well as others who provide valuable services to the industry," she added.

Organizers are looking for presentations that are pertinent to the group's audience, which includes banks, finance companies and originators of boat and yacht loans, marine portfolio investors, and ancillary services such as marine insurance, maritime attorneys, Coast Guard documentation and title agencies, and recovery and liquidation companies.

Interested presenters can contact Jackie Forese at forese2@msn.com.

The deadline for submissions is April 30.
