Long-time MBIA member Mary Rising re-appointed to Michigan State Waterways Commission
Congratulations to long-time MBIA member Mary A. Rising, of Fenton, office manager for Action Water Sports of Fenton on her re-appointment as a Michigan State Waterways Commissioner. Governor Whitmer reappointed Mary to represent a member from the marine-trades industry who does not own or operate a harbor or marina. She has completed her first 3-year term and will continue to serve for a 2nd term commencing September 19, 2020 and expiring September 18, 2023. "Mary has served as a dedicated Commissioner for the past three years and has been instrumental in the important work the MSWC has accomplished including providing input on the use of dedicated funds, provided by boaters, for the acquisition, development and maintenance of public harbors and boating access sites," said MBIA's Executive Director Nicki Polan. "Mary has a professional and balanced approach in her contributions to the MSWC for conservations, boaters, the industry, and the State of Michigan. She has extensive knowledge of the boating and fishing industry and brings to the group the very important inland lakes perspective. We are pleased the Governor allowed Mary to continue to contribute to the MSWC’s work."

Also appointed was Mark P. Yonan, of Holly, a financial advisor and senior vice president at Merrill Lynch. Mr. Yonan is appointed to represent the general public. The Michigan State Waterways Commission is responsible for the acquisition, construction, and maintenance of recreational harbors, channels, docking and launching facilities, and administration of commercial docks in the Straits of Mackinac. These appointments are subject to the advice and consent of the Senate.
