MBIA Members and Events Affected by Coronavirus

Dear MBIA Members,

At MBIA, the health and safety of our members and all people in our state is of paramount importance. For this reason, we support the tough decisions Governor Whitmer is making to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

One mandate ultimately shut down our 28th Annual Progressive Novi Boat Show for three of its four days, along with many other events around the state. We have extreme empathy for our members who put in a tremendous amount of time and work to build amazing displays for these events, without the benefit of the important days of selling these shows offers.

To facilitate spring sales, MBIA is utilizing our social media platforms (state-wide) to highlight the joy of boating and the adventure of the outdoors as a safe and fun family experience. We have heard from multiple sources that a safe place to be during any virus outbreak is outside, in the sun, and away from crowds - sure sounds like boating! Our efforts will be to lead customers directly to our member
locations for more information and hopefully strong spring sales activity.


We realize with every new mandate you are impacted just as we are, and we hope to be of service to you during this time. We are collaborating with many outside groups and agencies to bring you as much relevant information we can to help, and we are clarifying how mandates apply to our specific industry. Many of our meetings have been canceled or are on hold but our phones and email will always remain open to you.

Also remember, during this world health and financial crises, it is very important to keep things in prospective and to look for opportunities. Planning for the recovery is not only the key for a speedy recovery, it will also help ease the stresses of the current situation.

We thank you for your patience and understanding, and for your ongoing support during these difficult times. We are here to help and if you have questions, concerns, comments or suggestions, please don’t hesitate to contact your MBIA Board or staff at any time.

Nicki Polan
MBIA Executive Director
