2007 National Marina Day resource kit available online

WASHINGTON – The 2007 National Marina Day Resource Kits have been added to the Association of Marina Industries’ National Marina Day website, www.marinaassociation.org/nmd, and the NMD Resource Kit CD will arrive in the mail to AMI and BoatU.S. Cooperating Marina members this week, AMI said in a press release yesterday. The materials are available to everyone for download at no cost.

AMI produced National Marina Day, an annual nationwide celebration of the role America’s marinas play as gateways to boating and stewards of the environment. In 2007, National Marina Day will be observed August 11.

The 2007 NMD resource kits include a sample proclamation marina operators and owners can ask their local city council or governing body to pass that puts their community on record as being pro-marina; a sample one-page news release marina operators and owners can use to announce National Marina Day and encourage participation; a sample speech/guest column extolling the ways marinas benefit waterfront communities; a sample letter to customers communicating the vital role marinas play in waterfront cities and towns; a sample letter to local, state and federal officials educating them about the critical roles marinas play in America; a checklist that outlines how to conduct a marina tour for elected officials and policy makers; sample 30 second and 60 second radio spot scripts; and a sample salute to marina employees that can be posted in breakrooms or reproduced as a memo in paycheck envelopes.

“The NMD Resource Kit has made the event planning for marina operators much easier,” said Rybovich Marina’s Brad St. Coeur, NMD chairman. “Use of these resources will help make the day a success for your facility and help spread the word about the importance of marinas to communities across the country. It is my hope marina operators will take advantage of this annual event so that we can grow participation as well as increase our visibility to our local, state and federal legislatures.”
