|Liz Walz, MRAA Vice President|
Liz Walz joined the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas on August 15, 2012, having spent the better part of the previous 14 years in the marine industry. All of those years were spent at Boating Industry magazine, where she led the editorial team's efforts and helped to create and produce the Top 100 Dealers Program and the Marine Dealer Conference & Expo, in addition to being a central contributor to the print and online editorial efforts. As an award-winning marine journalist, Liz also was responsible for ensuring Boating Industry fulfilled its mission through all of its media outlets, as well, including the magazine, Web site, e-newsletters, blog, white papers, and more.
Liz is the only non-dealer member ever to be represented on MRAA's Young Leaders Advisory Council, and her passion for the marine industry, and particularly for the marine dealer body, is displayed in everything she does. She has also served as a judge for the Darlene Briggs Woman of the Year Award for many years.
Serving first as Director of Membership & Marketing, then transitioning to Director of Education, and now as Vice President, Liz leads the MRAA's efforts to develop first-class training and education for marine dealers through the Marine Dealer Conference & Expo, the MRAA Interactive Virtual Training System, the MRAA Resource Center, webinars and more.
