American Boating Congress





It is a time of change in Washington and a renewed opportunity for the recreational boating industry to have our voices heard in DC. One of our industry’s biggest tools to success in Washington is the Congressional Boating Congress-an informal, bipartisan group of elected officials dedicated to the interests of the boating community on Capitol Hill. Each year, NMMA sponsors the American Boating Congress and NMDA is a co-host.
