The National Safe Boating Council

The National Safe Boating Council (NSBC) was organized in September 1958 under the name National Safe Boating Committee. Our mission is to be the foremost coalition to advance and promote a safer recreational boating experience through education, outreach and training. The NSBC presently has a membership of over 330 U.S. and Canadian organizations, all with an interest in boating safety and education. The NSBC membership is diverse, with approximately 65% of the membership being nonprofit organizations and 35% being for-profit organizations.
