NASBLA concludes 2022 Leadership Academy

2022 NASBLA Leadership Academy

NASBLA hosted its eleventh annual Leadership Academy last week, June 5 - 10, in Lexington, Kentucky. This year, 26 students attended the Academy where they had the opportunity to learn about a variety of topics surrounding the Recreational Boating Safety (RBS) community. This was the largest class to date to complete NASBLA's Leadership Academy.

Academy participants spent the week hearing from NASBLA, U.S. Coast Guard representatives and subject matter experts on topics such as the National Recreational Boating Safety State Grant Program, waterway management, lessons of leadership, partnerships in the recreational boating community and NASBLA resources available to members. The class will be recognized at the 2022 NASBLA Annual Conference during the Business Meeting on September 30 in Manchester, New Hampshire.

The NASBLA Leadership Academy is designed to create learning opportunities where participants experience events with others, actively participate in dialogue, visually see examples and connect with peers as a cohort learning. This program seeks to develop a broad understanding of our diverse community while offering unparalleled opportunity to interact with other new BLAs and those in leadership roles from a wide variety of backgrounds. NASBLA Leadership Academy graduates will be well-prepared for service and leadership within their state, NASBLA and the National Recreational Boating Safety Community.
