MINNEAPOLIS — The Marine Retailers Association of the Americas (MRAA) today announced the hire of Hannah Muerhoff as MRAA membership coordinator. Muerhoff assumed the role in late January and now serves as the primary contact for all MRAA membership-related inquiries from both current and prospective members.
“Hannah comes to MRAA with a solid background in fundraising,” says Matt Gruhn, MRAA president. “She has an excellent understanding of association management, and her skill set as it relates to member outreach and development will be of tremendous value to association members moving forward. We’re excited to have Hannah on the team and look forward to her leading the charge of maintaining and growing the current MRAA membership base.”
Muerhoff is a recent graduate, with honors, from Minnesota’s St. Cloud State University and earned dual Bachelor of Arts degrees in both Political Science and International Relations. She brings with her to MRAA more than three years experience in association development and outreach, including an internship with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Minnesota at which she helped secure donations for several association initiatives and participated in regular member outreach.
In her role as MRRA membership coordinator, Muerhoff will be responsible for all member relations, outreach and solicitation efforts. She will serve as the main contact for member-related questions, including helping current members learn and understand the myriad benefits MRAA offers as a perk of membership, as well as working to recruit new members to the association. Muerhoff will likewise serve as a liaison to the MRAA Membership Committee and maintain the MRAA membership database.
Among her goals as membership coordinator, Muerhoff plans to make the MRAA membership renewal process more efficient for existing members and will work to engage and interact with both new and renewing members on a more personal level. With 30 tangible benefits available to both U.S. and Canadian MRAA members at present, she also seeks to further expand these offerings and ensure members throughout North America are able to take full advantage of their association benefits.
“These are exciting times for MRAA, as the association is growing at an impressive pace, and I’m thrilled to come on board and be a part of that continued growth and success,” says Muerhoff. “I look forward to sharing my enthusiasm for this new role with both current and prospective MRAA members in the hopes of delivering them a rewarding membership experience.”
