NMMA president named chairman of conservation group

National Marine Manufacturers Association president Thom Dammrich was elected chairman of the Sport Fishing and Boating Partnership Council.

Created in 1993, the council advises the Interior Secretary on nationally significant recreational fishing, boating and aquatic resources conservation.

Dammrich, who had previously served a two-year term, will serve another two-year term as chairman of the council, which comprises state resource agency directors and a representative of tribal resource agencies, representatives of fishing and boating industries and associations, and experts in public outreach, resource conservation and recreation.

"I am honored to chair the SFBPC," Dammrich said in a statement. "The council brings together some of the best representatives from all sectors of our community to protect our aquatic resources and enhance boating and fishing opportunities nationwide."

Douglass Boyd of the Coastal Conservation Association will serve as vice chairman.
