Many hands make light work and
our membership has privileges.

Ten Reasons to Join LEMTA

LEMTA includes services and benefits only a member can receive. For example, member boat show discounts; educational seminars; co-op advertising; industry news; legal opinions, and much more. Thus, membership produces a generous ROI in products and services.

1. – LEMTA does things critical to the success of your dealership or business that you can’t accomplish by yourself. For example, aggressive action by LEMTA during the Covid-19 pandemic got marine businesses declared “Essential” and, therefore, your business was not ordered to closed. We navigate the constant flood of state and local regulatory proposals saving you many hours of research, monitoring, compiling and acting on the requirements.

2. – LEMTA saves you money. You do the math. If it takes even 10 hours a month for you to find and digest all the information LEMTA provides its members, your ROI on your dues investment is 10 times the real cost per hour (don’t forget benefits cost), paid to your employee(s) to find the same information.

3. – LEMTA produces 5 boat shows annually to impact large audiences and increase the market for your products. Members enjoy space and ticket discounts and other services, thus producing an instant ROI on your membership dues.

4. – LEMTA periodically offers educational seminars and speakers on valuable subjects ranging from employee recruitment to digital marketing programs, all aimed to help you and your team sell more boats and services.

5. – LEMTA organizes and/or sponsors community events and media outreaches that promote boating in activities throughout northern Ohio.

6. – LEMTA keeps members exclusively informed through newsletters, members-only websites, Zoom meetings, email notices, and the staff is always available by phone.

7. – LEMTA’s educational foundation provides scholarships for college and/or technical training students. These are available to your employees and their kids as a no-cost benefit you can provide.

8. – LEMTA influences and negotiates directly with federal and state agencies for funding to build, remodel and improve access facilities needed by your customers

9. – LEMTA also produces intangible and ephemeral things that add up to real dollars for you as a member. These are things most members never see, like stopping a negative regulation or tax proposal, thus making sure it never happens and keeps thousands of dollars in your bank account!

10. – LEMTA consistently brings assets and people together to effect change that positively impacts dealerships, marinas, supply businesses, employees and customers.
