Established in 1966, the Maine Marine Trade Association (MMTA) is a not-for-profit trade association run with support and guidance provided by an all-volunteer Board of Directors. MMTA's 200 member firms are served by professional staff. MMTA promotes 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.

The Annual Conference & Business Meeting serves as a major training and networking event for the membership. Regional Meetings provide members with face to face access to the Board and Staff and additional peer to peer networking in a less formal setting. MMTA is the sponsor of the Maine Clean Boatyards & Marinas Program, a voluntary beyond compliance initiative that helps facility operators to meet and exceed environmental standards. MMTA also provides a powerful voice in advocating for the industry with State and Federal regulatory agencies and the legislature.
