Yesterday, boating industry stakeholders gathered for the second day of American Boating Congress (ABC) 2019. The day began with a comprehensive briefing on issues that are top of mind for the industry: trade, recreation, conservation, and blue-green infrastructure. The morning session also included a panel on the recreational boating and fishing community's successful efforts to get the Modern Fish Act passed into law late last year.

Before attendees set out to Capitol Hill for a day of meetings with lawmakers and Congressional staffers, the NMMA team provided a refresher on best practices and approaches for being an effective industry advocate.
