The NMMA and MRAA BoatPAC have exceeded their 2017 contributions goal of $150,000, raising almost $154,000 from 312 contributors.
With this support, NMMA and MRAA tackled important issues on Capitol Hill while advocating on behalf of the recreational boating industry, said NMMA President Thom Dammrich.
“We made a lot of progress in 2017 and the people in our industry who contributed should feel very proud of their commitment to recreational boating," Dammrich said. "Last year’s goal was a good step forward in our advocacy efforts and in 2018 our goal for BoatPAC is $200,000 — which gets us closer to a level we really need to be at for an industry of our size which is $250,000.”
