The U.S. Coast Guard is accepting applications for membership on the National Boating Safety Advisory Council.


The council advises the Coast Guard on matters related to recreational boating safety and regulation. Members are appointed by the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. The group usually meets twice a year at a location selected by the Coast Guard.


The council has 21 members, including seven state officials responsible for state boating safety programs; seven recreational boat and associated equipment manufacturers; five representatives of national recreational boating organizations; and two members of the public.


There will be seven vacancies starting in December: two state officials, two manufacturer representatives and three representatives of recreational boating organizations. Each member serves a term of up to three years and may serve consecutive terms.


Applications are due Sept. 1. Contact Jeanne Timmons, executive director of the advisory council, at (202) 267-1077.
