The Long Island City Community Boathouse is an Activity Committee of the Gowanus Dredgers Canoe Club, a 501(c)3 Public Charity. The LICCB has a Chairperson and a Leadership group, a non-binding advisory body that reports to the Chairperson, along with operational committees that carry out our basic functions.

Leadership is responsive to the ideas, suggestions and concerns of our Volunteers and anyone who wishes to participate in our programs. The members of the Leadership want to make it easy for you to communicate. You are welcome to make your voice heard.

If you’re interested in volunteering, or have suggestions or messages you wish to direct to the Leadership group, please send email to: Please enter as specific a Subject as possible on your email, to help us direct your message to the best person to respond.
