International Boating and Water Safety Summit

The 19th International Boating & Water Safety Summit will be held in Destin, Florida, on March 29th- April 1st, 2015. We invite you to join us as a presenter and share your experiences and knowledge.

The International Boating & Water Safety Summit is the premier event for training, awareness, meeting and networking for anyone involved in boating and water safety. General sessions cover a broad spectrum of national and international concerns with a focus on the USCG National Strategic Plan and implementation opportunities. Breakout sessions allow the individual to attend classes geared toward their profession including Education, Risk Management, Law Enforcement, Communication and Outreach.

NWSC's extensive award program recognizes the contributions of the many water safety professionals and dedicated volunteers.
