Modern Fish Act, E15 & Aluminum Tariffs — Why Your Attendance at ABC is Imperative

We would like to share this note from the President of the National Marine Manufacturers Association.

Dear Members, Colleagues, and Boating Industry Stakeholders,

Never has there been a more critical time to get involved in advocacy and attend the American Boating Congress (ABC). In 2018, the recreational boating industry is facing major policy decisions that will come to a head this summer and have long-term impacts on boating in the U.S., including getting the Modern Fish Act passed, stopping the year-round sale of E15, and defending our industry from domestic and global tariffs. Your presence at ABC will ensure your business, your employees and your customers are protected.

It is necessary we engage with our nation’s decision makers now to shape legislative decisions in the coming months. With so many key policy decisions on the horizon impacting your business, it’s imperative you attend ABC. We need as many people from our industry as possible to join together on Capitol Hill and demonstrate the size, impact and importance of our industry. Not only will you have a chance to speak directly with your Members of Congress, but ABC will arm you with information you need to make informed business decisions.

This year’s ABC is packed with informative sessions and speakers through the close of the conference on Friday, May 11. From high profile members of the Trump administration to leading decision makers and influencers across Capitol Hill, the robust schedule will connect attendees with people and information that matters to the future of our industry. Access the 2018 ABC schedule here, and learn more about the important issue workshops here.

Thank you, and see you in Washington,

Thomas J. Dammrich
