The Coast Guard is seeking applications for membership on the National Boating Safety Advisory Council, which advises the Secretary of Homeland Security through the Coast Guard on major boating safety matters.

The council’s 21 members are state officials responsible for boating safety programs, representatives of recreational vessel and equipment manufacturers, representatives of national recreational boating organizations and the public.

The council meets at least twice each year at a location the Coast Guard chooses. It is looking to fill seven positions that expire or become vacant at the end of the year. All applications must be received by Aug. 15.
