Marine Recreation Association hosts the second-ever California Boating Congress (CBC) in Sacramento on March 1. The all-day conference and meet-up connects boaters and marine professionals with industry leaders, policymakers and state legislators.
The event provides a forum for the state’s recreational boating industry to advocate on the issues directly affecting them and push for legislators to include boater needs in future policy proposals.
Speakers include California State Parks Director Lisa Mangat, California Sportfishing League Executive Director Marko Mlikotin, California Division of Boating and Waterways Enforcement Unit Director Corrina Dugger and California Department of Fish and Wildlife Environmental Program Manager (Marine Division) Sonke Mastrup.
Topics to be discussed at the CBC include predatory lawsuits, boating and fishing access, mandatory boater education and abandoned vessels.
The Log will be present at the CBC to ask industry leaders and state legislators important questions about the state of recreational boating.
