Thom Dammrich, addressing at ABC

The Marine Industry's Premier Political & Legislative Event:  May 15–17, 2017

When constituents talk, Congress listens.

You are the industry’s most effective advocate. No lobbyist is as influential as an employer or employee from a Congress member’s district or state. Attending ABC and participating in Capitol Hill visits with others from your state is the best way to educate your representatives on issues that impact your business. It’s your opportunity to build and strengthen relationships that lead to a brighter future for the recreational boating industry. NMMA will arrange your meetings and provide talking points and other resources to guide you through the ABC experience. All you have to do is register and attend!
