Discussions between the Southern California Marine Association and the National Marine Manufacturers Association have led to a tentative agreement for a merger between the two organizations, according to an exclusive story by the California-based marine publication, The Log.

Under the agreement, the NMMA would acquire and manage current SCMA industry support activities and boat shows, according to The Log. The merger plan would require approval by a vote of the SCMA membership. With approval, the 56-year-old SCMA would be dissolved as an independent organization and the NMMA would take control of SCMA’s five consumer boat shows in California, according to The Log.

NMMA and SCMA representatives declined comment to Trade Only Today.
