SAN DIEGO — Boat Ed has recently been announced as the Premier Sponsor for the 20th International Boating & Water Safety Summit (IBWSS), scheduled to be held March 6-9 at the Hyatt Regency Mission Bay in San Diego.
The announcement was made by the National Safe Boating Council (NSBC), the National Water Safety Congress (NWSC), and the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA). The IBWSS is the premier event for training, awareness, meeting and networking for anyone involved in boating and water safety in support of the National Recreational Boating Safety Strategic Plan, 2012-2016.
Boat Ed’s long-standing support of the IBWSS reflects the company’s commitment to promoting education initiatives and making recreational boating safer. Boat Ed’s support is driven by its dedication to providing print and online boating education courses to boaters in the United States and Canada.
Boat Ed’s history in recreational boating safety spans more than 20 years. In 1995, Kurt and Cindy Kalkomey incorporated Boat Ed to offer boating safety education and certification tests. Since then, Boat Ed has expanded across all of North America, now educating in all 50 U.S. states and Canada.
The 2016 IBWSS is co-hosted by the NSBC, NWSC, and NASBLA and it is produced in part with a grant from the Sport Fish Restoration and Boating Trust Fund, administered by the U.S. Coast Guard. For more information, visit IBWSS.org.
