The American Boating Congress is becoming a true industrywide event, with eight co-hosts signing on with the National Marine Manufacturers Association, which organizes ABC.

ABC will be held April 24-25 in Washington, D.C.

Committed co-hosts to date include 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 thrilled to co-host ABC in partnership with so many committed industry organizations. This is a real opportunity for growth through advocacy, bolstering the impact of ABC to benefit the recreational boating industry. We look forward to a continued expansion of ABC co-hosts,” NMMA president Thom Dammrich said in a statement.

ABC is the premier legislative conference for the recreational boating industry. The 2012 agenda includes a variety of speakers who have been invited to discuss an array of policy and legislative issues affecting the recreational boating industry. The event also includes visits to Capitol Hill so attendees can meet directly with lawmakers and their staffs.
