The Marine Recreation Association is a non-profit association that represents marina owners, boatyards, operators, and industry professionals throughout the Western U.S., Mexico, Hawaii and Australia.

The Association's mission is to provide a united voice in representing the interests of the boating and marine industries and to help educate and inform in all areas of recreational boating.

The past year has been a challenge to say the least, and the marine industry has experienced both pitfalls and opportunities. To meet these head-on the Marine Recreation Association is again sponsoring the California Boating Congress, bringing together the marine industry and boating community to advocate for this important part of our economy and culture.

With COVID still impacting our ability to meet directly with our legislators and regulators, this year’s CBC will be held in a virtual format on March 17, 2021, from 9 AM to 12 Noon PDT . . . Planning for 2030 & Beyond.

PLANNING FOR TWENTY THIRTY AND BEYOND Our Legislators are developing new initiatives today to limit and ultimately eliminate gasoline and diesel engines in California. The 2021 California Boating Congress will focus on understanding and responding to the potential impact of these measures on recreational boating and the marine industry, and more importantly how we can influence those initiatives through our representatives and regulators.
