Becoming a member affords representation on marine trades issues before the Maryland legislature, as well as with State and Federal agencies. The MTAM staff and the Association’s lobbyist John Stierhoff introduce and monitor legislative activities. Government officials are kept apprised of the marine industry’s position on various issues prior to the development of laws and regulations. Your membership in MTAM adds to our legislative clout – the size of our membership has direct impact on our legislative representation.
There are also endless opportunities for new business and referrals from other MTAM members and from the MTAM offices that field calls from boaters and other members who are seeking what you have to offer. Your firm will also receive a free category listing in the Annual Guide to Marine Services. Thousands of these books are printed each September and distributed through Boat Shows, Trade Shows, Maryland Tourism locations and through our member marinas. Membership also grants you listing on the MTAM website, designed to guide customers to your business based on your name and the services you provide. With links back to your own site, and to a map, MTAM.org is guaranteed to increase your business.
