GIVING BACK TO YOUR COMMUNITY

 

  • Participation in various community projects: Boat shows, VSC inspections, National Safe Boating Week.
  • Service to NOAA by providing revisions to existing charts through our Cooperative Charting program.

Membership is by application and is for anyone who shares our common love of boating, and is interested in advancing the objectives of the organization: the education of members, participation in civic programs, and the creation of an atmosphere of friendship and camaraderie among members.

One of the core beliefs of USPS membership is that an educated boater is a safe boater. It should then come as no surprise that there is an educational requirement. Typically, this has been satisfied by completion of one of our public boating courses. However, recognizing that education can be obtained from various sources, a number of additional courses have been recognized as meeting this educational requirement. Most recently, the membership has elected to allow squadrons to waive the educational requirements for experienced boaters.

Active members must be at least 18 years of age; there are no age considerations for family members.

Your membership in USPS makes you a part of the finest boating organization in the world and supports its important MISSION.

Your USPS certificate number is your ticket to real savings!
