NMEA Launches New Website For the Boating Industry


I am delighted to formally announce the launch of the new www.nmea.org website. I encourage you to check out www.nmea.org.

I know you will find a wealth of information and benefits for NMEA members. Access to the information has never been easier! Here are just a few of the benefits available to members only:

* Discount pricing on all training programs, including MEI (Marine Electronics Installer), Advanced MEI, CMET (Certified Marine Electronics Technician), and NMEA 2000® Networking.

* Discount pricing available on all standards including NMEA 2000® Edition 2.0, NMEA 0183 V. 4.00, and NMEA 0400.

* A special marketing section provides free or low cost marketing materials developed by the NMEA and its official magazine, Marine Electronics Journal. The materials include the MEJ Buyers¹ Guide for boaters, the NMEA brochure, NMEA logos, and other materials.

* Other information offered in the members only section includes digital issues of the Marine Electronics Journal, a Business Owner newsletter, and NMEA member news.

* NMEA member dealers and manufacturers receive special treatment in the ³For Boat Owners² section that is accessible through the home page of www.nmea.org.

For starters, only NMEA dealers are listed in the dealer section. CMET dealers appear at the top of each page and may post a logo that links to their website at no cost. NMEA manufacturers receive top billing in the product listings. In fact, the entire ³For Boat Owners² section is specifically designed to drive traffic to NMEA member companies!

I have only touched on some of the highlights of the new www.nmea.org and how the website can benefit your company. I hope you will take the time to use this very valuable tool – www.NMEA.org to enhance your marketing and your business!

Best wishes, David Hayden President/Executive Director NMEA 410-975-9425
