The Board of Directors of the Personal Watercraft Industry Association (PWIA) has appointed Maureen A. Healey as Executive Director of the boating industry trade group.
Healey has been with The Society of the Plastics Industry (SPI) since 1988, most recently as Vice President of Government Affairs, where she managed all federal, state and regulatory affairs affecting the $330 billion industry. Healey holds both a BA and an MA from the University of South Carolina. She spent two years working on Capitol Hill before joining the private sector as a government relations specialist.
“I plan to continue our efforts to ensure reasonable regulations and increased user education,” Healey said. “I look forward to educating policymakers on how far PWC technology has come, and eliminating unfair barriers that have been inflicted on responsible PWC owners.”
PWIA is an affiliate of the National Marine Manufacturers Association. PWIA members are U.S. personal watercraft manufacturers BRP, Honda, Kawasaki and Yamaha. For more information, visit www.pwia.org.
