Commander's Message


I’m looking forward to a great year, as we continue our mission of BUILDING BETTER BOATERS. As members of America’s Boating Club, we learn boating skills, engage with boating friends, and connect with the boating community. Each of these contribute to making us all better boaters.

I often find myself describing United States Power Squadrons in a short 30 second Elevator Pitch. This is often my response to “what did you do this weekend?” or “what are your plans for the weekend?” “Oh I see you’re off Friday, what’s going on?”

My response might be something like, I’m heading to the Summer Rendezvous of America’s Boating Club. We’re an organization dedicated the advancement of safe recreational boating. We learn together, boat together and help each other and other boaters on the water and on land.

The entire District Bridge is here to help you in any way necessary. We encourage you to ask for assistance, express your thoughts, and provide your feedback.

You have many reasons to be proud of your accomplishments in this fine organization.
Have a great year,
