VIDEO: Millennials encouraged to attend ABC

Publish date:

The National Marine Manufacturing Association is offering millennials a discount to attend the American Boating Congress May 9-11.

Millennials basically run Congress, according to the NMMA, as the average age of staffer is 25-26 years old.

Having millennials speak to the young staffers can make the difference in how the issues are heard, the NMMA said.

“We are offering a discount for new, young professionals to bring new generation of leaders,” NMMA legal and federal affairs vice president Nicole Vasilaros told Trade Only Today. “We are tracking a little above last year’s registrations at this time. We hope that continues to increase and that people recognize the call — this is a really critical year and members of Congress really need to hear from our industry.”

There will be a networking event and Q&A panel with Capitol Hill staffers exclusively for marine millennials. Check out a brief video here.
