Join Our Board

The CBC is currently seeking board members with a deep appreciation for boating, safety, and promoting the legacy of the marine recreation on Bellingham Bay.

Are you, or is someone you know, interested in joining the team responsible for guiding the vision of the Community Boating Center? Consider joining the CBC’s Board of Directors. Board members are volunteers who dedicate time, energy and passion to furthering the CBC’s mission and ensuring the CBC is able to serve Whatcom County long into the future.

Commitment involves a 3-year term, monthly board meetings, acting as a representative for the CBC in our community, and assisting with CBC events and projects as needed. For more information, please contact us at

We look forward to building an engaged boating community with you.
