"My company and I personally have received great benefit through our NSBC membership. Upon entering this industry, NSBC provided me professional orientation, shared educational tools, and resources which helped me grasp an understanding of where my company fits in and how we could best serve our customers. Like any membership or relationship, the most beneficial results are an outcome of both contribution and procurement." - Nichole Kalil, Media and Public Relations Lead for ACR Electronics, Mariner Club Member.

"Forever Resorts joined the NSBC because we want to show our customers that, as much as we value fun and enjoyment on the water, we also value safety. We want to support an organization whose main goal is safety, and feel that we receive that support back from the NSBC that we're an important part of the work they do." - Bruce Rowe, Director of Marine Services, Admiral Club Organization since 2006.
