BoatPAC Exceeds 2018 Fundraising Goal

NMMA recently announced that BoatPAC exceeded their 2018 fundraising goal of $200,000, raising nearly $202,000 from 348 donors – up from $154,000 and 312 donors in 2017. BoatPAC is the federal political action committee of NMMA and the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas (MRAA), which supports the election of candidates to the United States Congress who are strong advocates for recreational boating.

In response, NMMA’s President, Thom Dammrich, stated “We are extremely grateful to everyone who helped BoatPAC surpass its ambitious 2018 fundraising benchmark. Thanks to this generous support, we have cultivated new, important relationships with members of Congress to help ensure the industry’s priorities are front and center in Washington, D.C.

“For 2019, we have increased BoatPAC’s goal to $250,000 – a level that will make our advocacy efforts even more formidable. We look forward to working with our industry partners to achieve it.”
