The Personal Watercraft Industry Association presented its 2011 Boating Safety Leadership award to Sharon Carrick, director of the Maryland Department of Natural Resources' Licensing and Registration Service, and Boyd Walden, deputy director of Florida’s Division of Motorist Services.

The presentations were made Sept. 12 during the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators’ annual conference in Milwaukee.

The award is presented annually to one or two public officials who, along with NASBLA, have worked toward significant steps around boating safety.

The award this year recognizes the work Carrick and Walden did as part of NASBLA’s Titling Committee, in close conjunction with the Uniform Law Commission, to develop The Uniform Certificate of Title Act for Vessels.

“Just as today’s personal watercraft have grown in design and use to become just another type of boat, it is appropriate that this year’s award recognize work that benefits all boaters,” PWIA executive director David Dickerson said in a statement.
