The National Association of State Boating Law Administrators opens the first installment of the new Boating Law Administrator Academy this week in Lexington, Ky.

The inaugural academy is designed to give new boating law administrators a broad understanding of the diverse recreational boating community while offering an opportunity to network with others in the field.

After completing the inaugural workshop and the monthly continuing education, participants will graduate from the new academy at the group’s spring Boating Law Administrator Workshop in early March 2012.

“NASBLA is excited to offer this learning opportunity for new [boating law administrators]. Academy graduates will be well prepared for service and leadership within their state, NASBLA and the national recreational boating safety community,” executive director John Johnson said in a statement.

The National Association of State Boating Law Administrators is a national non-profit organization that works to develop public policy for recreational boating safety.
