Mission Statement

To promote growth, prosperity, and cooperation within the marine industry in Maine, to encourage and publicize educational opportunities leading to and furthering careers in the marine trades, and to encourage and assist in the development of best practices in the marine industry with a focus on the environment, and health and safety.

About Our Organization

The Maine Marine Trade Association was incorporated as a not-for-profit trade association in 1966. Today – more than 50 years from our creation – the tradition of strong volunteer participation continues with support and guidance provided by an all-volunteer Board of Directors.

About Our Activities

MMTA is committed to serving its members’ needs by providing quality programs and services focusing on workplace safety, environmental compliance, and training. Our Annual Conference and Business Meeting serve as a major training and networking event for the membership.

MMTA provides a powerful voice in advocating for the industry with State and Federal regulatory agencies and the legislature. We believe strongly that working with the government can, and does, provide positive outcomes for our members, employees, customers, communities, and the State of Maine.
