MRAA Launches “Call for Solutions”

The Marine Retailers Association of America (MRAA) launched an open “Call for Solutions” to solicit educational partnerships throughout 2019. Instead of a traditional “Call for Speakers” for a single event, MRAA is interested in potential solutions across all of its educational offerings, including both its annual conference and expo, Dealer Week and other educational initiatives.

“Some topics are perfectly suited for a live presentation at Dealer Week, and we’re excited to receive those suggestions,” said Mike Davin, MRAA’s Director of Education. “Other material, however, is more appropriate to a white paper or an in-depth online learning course. For us, it’s all part of an ongoing process of dealer education throughout the year, so for 2019 we’re opening up our call to a greater variety of content.”

MRAA develops online and in-person courses, digital publications, webinars, tools, templates, sample processes, and a number of other educational offerings for dealers all year long, in partnership with experts from both inside and outside the marine industry.

In addition, during the next few months, MRAA staff and the Education Committee will be researching potential trainers, educators and other experts for its 43rd annual conference, Dealer Week, December 8 to 11 at the Tampa Convention Center in Tampa, Florida.
