The National Marine Representatives Association is hosting free "Ask A Rep" sessions from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Oct. 2 and Oct. 3 during the International BoatBuilders Exhibition and Conference.

Designed primarily for component or accessory manufacturers new to the industry or for those who wish to learn about the value of reps in the sales chain, the brief one-on-one consultations will be held at the NMRA booth No. 751.

NMRA members with decades of experience specializing in OEM and aftermarket industry segments will be available for individual discussions and to answer general questions.

"The relationship between an independent rep and a factory can have many variables,” Chris Kelly of Waters & David Co., who serves as the NMRA's current president, said in a statement. “We hope to educate industry members about the general role reps can play in a business or offer insight as to ways a company can move forward in the market. Our members have extensive knowledge of the OEM, distributor, or dealer and retail segments."

Appointment requests can be made through info@nmraonline.org through Sept. 27 and walk-ins will be accommodated based on availability.
