National Marine Manufacturers Association president Thom Dammrich is urging manufacturers to bring their “rising stars” to the American Boating Congress, the industry’s annual political and legislative event on Capitol Hill.
The NMMA is encouraging companies to bring the “next generation” as part of its young professionals program.
“With discounted registration of $350 — compared to the $500 regular rate — we’re offering special programs for attendees 35 years of age and younger,” Dammrich said in a letter to NMMA members. “We hope you’ll bring at least one of your company’s rising stars to experience first-hand the importance of advocacy in the recreational boating industry.”
It’s vital for members of NMMA’s leadership team to participate in ABC, said Dammrich. “By attending ABC, you signal to the rest of the industry how important this event is to our year-round advocacy work,” he said.
ABC is scheduled for May 13-15 in Washington, D.C.
