The Marine Retailers Association of the Americas and the National Marine Manufacturers Association are spreading the word to their members about the American Boating Congress, set for May 8-9 in Washington, D.C.

Early-bird registration packages are available for those who sign up to attend the event designed to guide legislation that facilitates boating and the industry on Capitol Hill.

It’s a push that’s been widely echoed throughout the industry in the last year so stakeholders can make their concerns heard directly to representatives in Congress.
