MMA COMMITTEES

Marine Marketers of America is THE exclusive association for those employed marketers working in the marine association. We are the voice for Marine Marketers and host a variety of committees to benefit our members.

COMMITTEE OPPORTUNITIES

SOCIAL MEDIA
 

You know who you are! You’re already a pro at posting on social media and have a knack at knowing exactly what will get fellow marketers’ attention - so why not do it for MMA?!


This committee will require approximately 8-10 hours per month.

AWARDS & RECOGNITION
 

This committee is all about celebrating the best of the best in the industry. Join this committee to put your efforts into developing programs that recognize the achievements of amazing marketers! 

 

This committee will require approximately 1-3 hours per non-active month and 8-10 hours per active month.

NETWORKING
 

Goal:

Strengthen and grow the network of marketing professionals in the boating industry through in-person and remote opportunities to meet, share ideas, or make connections.

What is it all about?

The Networking Committee is all about creating fun and engaging opportunities to bring marine marketers together.  We work together to plan our two high-capacity events at the Ft. Lauderdale and Miami boat Shows. We also identify other opportunities throughout the year to meet as an Association or invite potential members to learn about our group. If you are interested in event planning and/or professional or personal networking opportunities, this is the committee for you.


Time commitment: 1 hour on non-active months, 5-10 hours on active months including time on-site at events. It will be more enjoyable to join this committee if you plan to attend a portion of the in-person gatherings throughout the year.
