NMMA debuts online advocacy forum

The National Marine Manufacturers Association announced a new grassroots advocacy platform — Boating United — for NMMA members, business owners, industry stakeholders and all who hope to ensure their voice is heard on Capitol Hill on behalf of recreational boating.

Boating United is an online community for marine manufacturers, boating businesses, enthusiasts and supporters. The NMMA said the site makes it easy for NMMA members and marine industry stakeholders to directly participate in advocacy efforts.

Through Boating United, users can sign up to receive updates on legislation affecting the industry, learn more about bills and contact their member of Congress. Boating United’s “action center” allows users to send pre-drafted letters to their member of Congress or for users to write their own.

Action alerts such as the EPA’s decision surrounding ethanol and the Renewable Fuel Standard as well as boating access issues at Biscayne National Park in Florida are featured in the action center. As new issues arise, the NMMA will update and send these alerts to Boating United users, allowing them to take swift action on behalf of our industry.

The NMMA said anyone who would like to participate can visit www.BoatingUnited.com or www.nmma.org/government/default.aspx and click on “Take Action.”
