Registration for the recreational boating industry’s annual advocacy event, the American Boating Congress, is now open to all industry stakeholders. The American Boating Congress (ABC) will return to Washington, D.C. from May 8-10, 2024, bringing together all segments of the recreational boating industry to share its collective voice on Capitol Hill and address pressing matters for the industry.

Register here for early-bird pricing through April 1, 2024.

Bill Yeargin, President and CEO of Correct Craft and NMMA’s Chair of the Board of Directors discusses the importance of the American Boating Congress in Boating Industry.

“Maybe the most important part of ABC will be our trips to Capitol Hill on Thursday, May 9, for meetings with Senators and Representatives. When a business leader is willing to visit Washington, D.C., and meet with their representatives, it carries tremendous weight,” Yeargin notes. Senators and Representatives give much more credence to business folks than they do lobbyists; your presence in these meetings can have a significant impact— and it’s super easy. The NMMA team will set up Capitol Hill appointments for you, connect you with others from your state to join you on your visit, and give you all the information and tips needed for a successful meeting.”
