MINNEAPOLIS — The Marine Retailers Association of the Americas has launched a monthly payment plan option to make dues payments easier and more affordable for its Retail Members.

With this new offering, MRAA’s New and Renewing Retail Members can choose whether to pay their annual dues of $300 all at once via a check, money order or credit card payment or to spread them out into 12 credit card payments of $25 per month.

"The seasonal nature of the boating business requires dealers to constantly be adjusting their businesses in order to align their expenses with their revenues,” says Matt Gruhn, MRAA President. "By introducing this monthly payment option, dealers can take care of their dues on the schedule that best fits their business’ needs. It is one more example of how the MRAA is always evaluating and re-evaluating our offerings to ensure they meet and exceed our members’ needs and expectations.”

For just $25 per month or $300 per year, MRAA Retail Members are automatically enrolled in the MRAA Rewards Program, which offers more than 20 benefits proven to save dealers money, increase their revenues and enhance their performance. In addition, they gain access to the MRAA Rewards Resource Center, which includes hundreds of pages of members-only content, tools, forms and other documents to help dealers and their employees succeed in today’s competitive marine environment.

"I don’t know of anywhere else that dealers can turn where they have access to so many different ways to improve their business and at such a reasonable price,” says Liz Walz, MRAA Director of Membership & Marketing. "Each of our benefits, resources and events can make a real difference in a dealership’s success. Many dealers achieve a return on their investment in MRAA Membership by taking advantage of just one.”
