Boating law group honors longtime contributor

The National Association of State Boating Law Administrators recently presented US Sailing’s Jo Mogle with its Lifetime Achievement Award for meaningful contributions to recreational boating safety on the state and national levels.

NASBLA first presented its Lifetime Achievement Award in 1998. It is designed for people who have contributed to boating safety during their lifetime or career.

Mogle has been recognized as a national authority on boating education and safety for decades. She has participated in NASBLA’s boating education committee for more than two decades, including much time devoted to boating education standards.

Mogle also has been an active participant in the International Boating and Water Safety Summit and has provided a great deal of help to the National Safe Boating Council, including grant work.

“Jo has been instrumental in partnering with all of the recreational boating safety community. She's always been an excellent liaison on these issues as she adds her expertise, her receptiveness and her passion to the efforts,” Jeff Hoedt, chief of the Boating Safety Division within the Coast Guard Office of Auxiliary and Boating Safety, said in a statement.
