Registration for the American Boating Congress is now open and spaces are rapidly filling. The opening comes on the heels of the addition of two more event co-hosts; the National Marine Bankers Association and the Michigan Boating Industries Association, bringing the total number of industry supporters to eleven.
In addition to those mentioned above, committed co-hosts to-date include the National Marine Manufacturers Association, the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas, the Center for Coastal Conservation, the South Carolina Marine Association, the National Marine Distributors Association, the Boy Scouts/Sea Scouts, the Boating Trades Association of Metropolitan Houston, the U.S. Superyacht Association and the Association of Marina Industries. These leading industry groups have answered the call to strengthen the industry’s collective advocacy impact during ABC being held in Washington, DC on April 24-25.
ABC is the premier legislative conference for the recreational boating industry. The 2012 agenda includes a variety of dynamic speakers, invited to discuss an array of urgent policy and legislative issues affecting the recreational boating industry. Policymakers, advocates and stakeholders will be on hand to respond to industry specific issues.
NMMA President, Thom Dammrich says “NMMA is delighted at the industry’s response to ABC as the number of cohosts grows, supporting the commitment to an even greater voice of advocacy for the industry. This year’s event stands to become a far-reaching opportunity for partnership and growth throughout all facets of the recreational boating industry.”
