Two more co-hosts signed on to the American Boating Congress, the National Marine Manufacturers Association announced today.

The National Marine Bankers Association and the Michigan Boating Industries Association join nine previously announced co-hosts of the annual legislative event, set for April 24-25 in Washington, D.C.

In addition to the NMMA, they are: 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.

“NMMA is delighted at the industry’s response to ABC as the number of co-hosts grows, supporting the commitment to an even greater voice of advocacy for the industry,” NMMA president Thom Dammrich said in a statement. “This year’s event stands to become a far-reaching opportunity for partnership and growth throughout all facets of the recreational boating industry.”
