The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), upon the recommendation of the Florida Boating Advisory Council (BAC), is requesting applications for participation in a Non-Motorized Boat Working Group.  The working group will meet face-to-face and via conference calls throughout a three year period to discuss needs within the non-motorized boating communities and to explore improvements in the following areas:


  • Access
  • Safety
  • Education, and
  • User fees and benefits 


The working group will be comprised of 10-14 members, each with experience and perspective in any number of non-motorized boating activities.   FWC will cover allowable travel costs for members to participate in working group meetings.


If you are interested in active engagement in the process, have knowledge about local issues and enjoy working collaboratively with others with diverse viewpoints, the FWC would encourage your application. For more information, please contact Precious Boatwright at (850) 617-9594 or
