CANCELED: American Boating Congress -- Join NMMA For A Virtual Advocacy Summit in May

In light of the recent developments surrounding the spread of COVID-19 and in the best interest of the health and safety of our members and attendees, we regret to inform you that we are canceling the American Boating Congress, scheduled to be held in Washington, D.C. from May 12–14, 2020. While we are saddened to give this update, we believe this is a necessary step given the current environment and very much look forward to welcoming you all back to our nation’s capital in the years to come. All registration fees and hotel room deposits reserved through the event blocks will be refunded within five business days.

Although we will no longer be able to come together in person, NMMA is still here to serve as a resource for you throughout this time of uncertainty and is actively pushing forward as an advocate for the industry in the coming months of recovery. To that end, NMMA will be hosting a virtual American Boating Congress on May 13, where we will provide more information on how we are pursuing these outreach and advocacy efforts, particularly as this COVID-19 pandemic continues to strain businesses across the country and threaten the broader economy. Additionally, the event will feature remarks from members of Congress and Trump administration officials. We will follow up with all attendees regarding information on how to sign up for this opportunity in the days ahead.

During this period, NMMA is here to support you in whatever way that we can. Thank you for your continued support, and if you have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at or email NMMA’s COVID-19 task force at
