Help Showcase Recreational Boating on Manufacturing Day

Manufacturing Day (MFG Day) is just two weeks away – be a part of the nation’s largest movement to showcase manufacturing in the U.S.! Help showcase recreational boating, the industry’s local and national economic significance, and job opportunities by hosting an event at your facilities. Manufacturing Day provides a seamless way to open your doors to everyone from students and job seekers, to teachers and community leaders. NMMA encourages every manufacturing member to get involved; here are a few ideas for an event:

  • Highlight the economic importance of the boating industry by inviting local lawmakers and decision makers to your facility. Contact Erica Crocker,, for assistance in getting elected officials on board.
  • Promote recreational marine manufacturing as a career and job choice, extending invitations to students and job seekers.
  • Demonstrate support of the local community, inviting workers’ families in for lunch and a tour.
  • All of the above!
