We make boating affordable!

 

 

 

PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

Spring is in the air - well, everywhere except perhaps the Northeast :(  But, the worst is hopefully behind us and we can all start to focus on warmer weather and a busy boating season.

2018 has already brought us two new members - Luxury Law Group, Ft. Lauderdale, FL (Danielle Butler) and Reliable Documentation, Inc., Costa Mesa, CA (Kathi Krencik Ford). Please review their company's information found in this website's "Member Directory" (found at the ABOUT US tab) and reach out to them if they can assist you in any way. Welcome aboard Danielle and Kathi!

This past February, we gathered in Ft. Lauderdale for our Marine Lending Workshop where we shared "best practices" with the 35 folks onhand. Covered by speakers and panelists was underwriting to collections and everything in between. If you weren't able to attend this year, please put it on your calendar for 2019. It's an educational program that you don't want to miss.

Our next big event will be our 39th Annual Conference at the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa in Traverse City, MI, September 9th -11th. The Conference Committee is already working on this year's agenda and registration information will be available in April by email announcement and also via the link at the bottom of this Homepage. 

Also in the works is the NMLA 2018 Annual Report, the only compilation of marine lending data available anywhere. This year's survey has been distributed to our lender members for their completion, and we anticipate availability of the full report (again in convenient PDF format) at the end of the 2nd Quarter. 

Thank you all for your ongoing support of the NMLA and for making everything we do possible. Have a wonderful Spring and please, don't hesitate to contact me or any of our directors and staff members if we can assist you in any way.

Dennis Poer, President

It was created, and continues today, to educate current and prospective lenders in marine financing procedures, promote the extension of credit to consumer and trade borrowers, maintain alliances with industry partners, measure and report on the vitality of the marine lending market, and actively maintain networking and communication benefits for its members.

The National Marine Lenders Association is made up of banks, loan origination companies (service companies), finance companies, credit unions and other industry professionals.
