The National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA) is excited to announce that effective Jan. 1, 2021, Alex Otte was promoted to the National President of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD). As President, Otte will serve as national spokesperson and chief advocate for MADD, whose mission is to end drunk driving, help fight drugged driving, support the victims of these violent crimes, and prevent underage drinking.

Prior to being selected to serve in this position, Otte worked as a Research Associate after joining NASBLA in 2018. Otte was the lead researcher and writer for NASBLA’s Boating Under the Influence (BUI) Report and Dashboard. The report serves as a collection of summaries of international studies related to alcohol, impairment, and the effects that those can have on rates of fatalities and traumatic injuries as it pertains to recreational boating. Otte was also heavily involved in the association’s national BUI outreach and awareness campaign, Operation Dry Water. Additionally, she collaborated with the NASBLA Boat Operations and Training (BOAT) Program, speaking with officers about the importance of their work as it relates to not only documentation and reporting, but also working with victims and their families after an incident.
