We make boating affordable!
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.
MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT - Michael Bryant
REGISTER TODAY for NMLA’s 36th Annual Conference. This year's destination - the beatiful Naples Grande Beach Resort on Florida's Gulf Coast. The hotel has wonderful conference facilities, newly renovated guest roomes and suites with furnished, private balconies, gorgeous Gulf views, great restaurants and bars, a spa, 15 tennis courts, 3 pools, and a boardwalk and paths through a 200-acre nature preserve to their 23 waterfront acres and miles of sugar-sand beach. And that's just the location!
This year's program will be exceptional and will include industry and economic updates, a look back on the early stages of the past recession including tips from our industry partners on do’s and don’ts for the future (panel discussion), break-out sessions, and our Keynote speaker, Mr. Robert Siciliano. Robert is an expert in not only identity theft but in cyber security as well, an extremely “hot” topic these days. Always entertaining, Robert will give the group tips on how to stay safe in a world where virtual crime is commonplace.
And, did I mention our Golf Tournament??? The Naples Grande Golf Club has been voted one of the “10 Best New Golf Courses in Florida” by Travel and Leisure Golf. This par 72 Rees Jones course will surely challenge even our best players.
We have also arranged a trip to Naples "Tin City" waterfront area for our non-golfers, a fabulous, poolside BBQ Tuesday night, and much, much more. We look forward to seeing you September 27-29 at this year's event.
