Agenda Set for American Boating Congress

The National Marine Manufacturers Association is urging the marine industry to attend this year’s American Boating Congress, May 9 to 11.

“It is critical we engage with our nation’s decision makers now to shape legislative decisions in the coming months. With so many key issues coming to a head this summer, it’s imperative you attend this year’s American Boating Congress to help us address major policy decisions impacting your business,” Thom Dammrich, NMMA president said.

Policy decisions that can impact the recreational boating industry will be on the table this summer and will include passage of the Modern Fish Act, the future of E15 and effects of domestic and global tariffs. Those attending ABC will learn more about the current issues at a series of workshops and have the opportunity to meet directly with members of Congress. In addition, the final day will feature a keynote by Chris Wallace, followed by presentations from Lucas Hitt, congressional liaison at the Bureau of Economic Analysis; Chad Moutray, chief economist at the National Association of Manufacturers and Captain Jennifer Williams of the United States Coast Guard.
