ACA Chief Operating Officer Christopher Stec was elected Chair of the National Safe Boating Council (NSBC) at their annual meeting in Rapid City, South Dakota on September 10, 2017.


The NSBC was organized in September 1958 and its 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 500 organizations, instructors and individuals all with an interest in boating safety and education. The NSBC membership is diverse, with membership consisting of nonprofit organizations, for-profit organizations, certified instructors and individuals,

“It is an honor to have been elected to serve the boating community in this capacity for the next two years.  I would like to extend my heartfelt appreciation to the previous three NSBC Chairs whom I’ve worked with for providing their vision and leadership to the Council over the past six years: Joyce Shaw of the United States Power Squadrons, Chris Edmonston of the BoatUS Foundation, and Richard Moore formerly of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

On behalf of the NSBC Board of Directors, national staff and volunteers, we look forward to continuing to collaborate with partner organizations to make America’s waterways safer and more enjoyable for all.”
