The U.S. Superyacht Association (USSA) once again joined with other Regional and National Associations to Co-Host the American Boating Congress (ABC)–the marine industry’s premier legislative event, with the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA).
Our Members are our industry’s most effective advocate. No lobbyist is as influential as an employer from a member’s district or state. Attending ABC and going on Capitol Hill visits with others from your state and region is the best way to update your representatives and their staff on issues that affect your livelihood and help them to understand your position when voting on issues that impact our industry.
This two-day event gives the USSA the opportunity to participate first-hand in the legislative process…because when constituents talk, Congress listens! In addition to the organized events, USSA hosted our own Hill Visits and member activities.
