AwardsMany CPS-ECP volunteers have worked throughout the last year to advance the vision, mission and values of CPS-ECP and contribute to the saftey of boaters to ensure this year’s boating season is a safer boating experience and an enjoyable recreation.

Please consider recognizing a fellow CPS-ECP member(s) for her/his contributions by nominating her/him for one or more of the CPS-ECP National Volunteer Awards. Many of our volunteers deserve that consideration.
