The Marine Retailers Association of America and the U.S. Power Squadrons have pledged to work together to encourage and promote recreational boating safety and the enjoyment of boating throughout the country.


The Memorandum of Understanding was signed Feb. 24 at the Power Squadrons' annual meeting in Jacksonville, Fla.


As part of the agreement, MRAA will provide contacts of marine retailers who are willing to promote USPS boating safety classes and civic service projects. The association also will post key boating information on, and provide appropriate MRAA-produced safety materials to the USPS.


The Power Squadrons will continue to conduct boating safety courses and civic service programs through participating marine retailers and will provide MRAA members in advance with dates, times, and locations of safety courses.
