Host a Facility Tour
Congressional Facility Tour: Educating Legislators about the Industry
Educating policy-makers about the recreational boating industry is crucial to NMMA advocacy efforts. Congressional plant tours advance this goal by informing key Congressional leaders about the role your business plays in the community as well as the issues confronting both your business and the industry.
Hosting a plant tour “puts a face” on the industry and offers you the opportunity to demonstrate your products, share success stories, highlight the number of jobs your business creates and explain the economic impact of your business on the community.
Developing a relationship through a plant tour may also prompt a legislator to return your call or solicit your opinion when crucial issues arise.
A Win-Win Situation
All parties benefit from a Congressional Plant Tour: Legislators get to meet their constituents. Your business brings its concerns to the attention of individuals who can address them. And, sharing their work with Senators and Representatives instills a sense of pride in employees.
