The Marina Association of Texas (MAT), a non-profit, volunteer organization composed of marinas on the inland and coastal waters of Texas, as well as associate members whose firms supply products and services to marinas, was organized in January of 1973 with a mission to improve, protect and advance the interest of the marina industry in Texas. It was initiated through the Sea Grant Program of Texas A&M University. The Marina Association of Texas was the first association of its kind in the nation. Members come together annually to share ideas, knowledge and experiences for the mutual benefit of all within the industry. It is directed by a member-elected Board of Directors and officers.
The 2015 Installation Banquet was held on September 30 at 7 p.m. Jackson, along with two other members of the Marinas International delegation, was inducted as part of the ceremony. She will serve a one year term on the Board of Directors and is dedicated to furthering the growth and development of the association.
