California Boating Congress Set for February 2018

The Marine Recreation Association (MRA) is again sponsoring the California Boating Congress, where the marine industry and boating community come together at the state capital to advocate for issues affecting the state’s economy and culture, and chart the future of boating policy in California.

The event begins with a cocktail reception on Feb. 27. The following day a keynote address will summarize the current legislative issues impacting the marine industry, breakout sessions will be held on specific key issues and how to lobby, and then attendees will go to the state capital for meetings with individual legislative representatives.

Meetings with representatives must be scheduled ahead of time, so attendees are asked to register early to secure time. Visit for more information.

The California Boating Congress is a collaboration between MRA and other boating related groups, including the Worldwide Boaters Safety Group, California Yacht Brokers Association, National Marine Manufacturers Association, California Marine Affairs and Navigation Conference, Personal Watercraft Industry Association, California Sportfishing League, California Delta Chambers & Visitors Bureau, Recreational Boaters of California, Bay Planning Coalition, Sacramento Valley Marine Association, and California Association of Harbor Masters & Port Captains.
