Owners descend on Capitol Hill to Unite with Industry Advocates
Rockledge, FL (April 19, 2016)—On May 9-11, 2016 in Washington DC, SeaDek Marine Products will join a broad group of marine business owners, representatives, and lobbyists in a rallying-cry to strengthen the industry’s collective advocacy impact. Jason Gardner, Principle and Vice President of Marketing, as well as Serenity Gardner, Chief Operating Officer, are proud to take the opportunity to communicate directly with policy makers about the issues facing the marine industry.
“It is critical that we are involved in local, state, and national issues that affect our business and our livelihoods. The American Boating Congress hosted by the NMMA is the perfect venue to enable leaders in the recreational boating industry to inform our congressional representatives on the decisions and ultimately laws that impact us. Some of the issues that will be discussed this year include one of the most pressing concerns we have in Florida’s Space Coast today—environmental compliance. With hundreds of thousands of dead fish in our own backyard, in large part because of polluted water, this industry and our business is seriously impacted, and we look forward to bringing these issues to our representatives,” said Serenity Gardner.
The ABC is the industry’s most important advocacy event, providing the opportunity to build and strengthen relationships with congressmen and representatives who play a key role in legislation that directly impacts boating in America. The two-day event features keynote speakers, scheduled visits to Capitol Hill, and the opportunity to network with other members of the boating community, with the common goal of ensuring a healthy future for recreational boating.
