Starting today, MRAA and other representatives of the recreational boating industry will convene in Washington DC for the annual American Boating Congress. ABC is the industry’s primary political and legislative gathering, where all sectors of recreational boating work for three full days to present a unified front to congress on the critical issues impacting our industry. Top issues this year will include addressing the workforce crisis in the marine industry, getting the Modern Fish Act passed, and stopping the year-round sale of E15.
Regardless of whether you are or are not registered to attend, participating in our digital conversation will help elevate our policy priorities to Member of Congress. We encourage you to engage with us on social media and help spread the word about the most important issues facing the recreational boating industry. You can access sample tweets and posts, images and videos here.
Make sure to use the hashtag #ABC2018 and share the link above with your entire team. Elected officials and their staff pay close attention to social media, and engagement from your entire team will strengthen our advocacy.
