  About Us

District 14 is one of the 33 districts of United States Power Squadrons®. It is made up of 7 squadrons, located in Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts. The squadrons range in size from about 30 to over 200 members. District 14 has over 900 members. Look at our District Map. The location of each Squadron is shown on the map.

United States Power Squadrons, its Districts and Squadrons are non-profit boating organizations devoted to safe boating through education whose members consist of enthusiastic sailors and powerboaters. Our national organization, the USPS®, tries to meet the needs of all boaters, both power and sail, big and small, by providing free public boating education courses to all current or prospective boaters and by offering advanced boating education and fraternal boating to their members. It is the squadrons who conduct the public boating courses and are the real heart of the USPS organization.

Our District Commander and five Lieutenant Commanders are collectively known as the District Bridge. They are supported by a large number of officers and committees leading every aspect of our operation. These operations are governed by the District Bylaws. The District serves as the link between USPS and our local squadrons. It serves as a resource to the squadron leadership by providing information and guidance to the squadron officers and committees. It also provides feedback to the national organization about items of concern to the squadrons. Each squadron officer has a district counterpart who can provide information and answer questions.

The district in cooperation with one of it's local squadrons host a Fall and a Spring District Conference each year. These one or two day meetings include business meetings and seminars as well as many social gatherings. Seminar subjects include educational course offerings, boating safety, vessel safety check, co-op charting, membership and membership involvement, publications and officer meetings. The USPS Chief Commander or a representative of attends and participates in each of these meetings.

The United States Power Squadrons is known for our Public Boating Courses. To find the next Boating Course near you, check our Boating Courses and District Map pages.
