NMMA hosts politicians and media on DC cruise

Last week, the National Marine Manufacturers Association hosted more than 10 political and policy reporters from major publications for a boat cruise on the Potomac River. The outing is part of NMMA’s strategy to expand the association’s profile in the nation’s capital.

During the event, NMMA representatives provided information about the recreational boating industry to the reporters and the organization’s role advocating for the marine industry. NMMA team members also discussed some of the more pressing issues facing U.S. marine manufacturers.

NMMA says the cruises are similar to BoatPAC outings, and are “a critical component” of bolstering the association’s advocacy efforts in Washington, D.C.
