ABOUT US

Welcome to the National Marine Lenders Association

The National Marine Lenders Association (NMLA) was formed in 1979 by founding directors Bill Otto, Jackie Forese, and the late Don Mattocks. 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.

MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT - Michael Bryant

 110 EXPECTED AT 2016 ANNUAL LENDERS CONFERENCE

NMLA's 37th Annual Lenders Conference, scheduled for September 25-27, 2016 at the King and Prince Beach and Golf Resort, St. Simons Island, GA, has attracted a terrific turn-out! This year, we have another outstanding program including (8) speakers who will impart the latest industry statistics from both the finance as well as the consumer's perspective, a "hold on to your hats" economic update for this tumultuous election year, and from our motivational speaker Dave "The Shef" Sheffield, a lesson on "how to keep your head on while working your butt off". There will be plenty of opportunities to network with business associates and old friends at receptions, our very own "Casino Night", a golf tournament, and a historic trolley tour of St. Simons Island, GA.

We hope to see you there!
