The Coast Guard is extending the deadline for accepting applications for membership on the National Boating Safety Advisory Council. This Council advises the Coast Guard on recreational boating safety regulations and other major boating safety matters.

Completed applications should reach the Coast Guard on or before June 11, 2015.

The Coast Guard will consider applications for seven positions that expire or become vacant on December 31, 2015:

• Two representatives of state officials responsible for state boating safety programs
• Two representatives of recreational boat and associated equipment manufacturers
• Three representatives of national recreational boating organizations or the general public

Applications will also be considered for a one vacancy in the national recreational boating organizations or the general public membership category that was caused by a last minute change in eligibility of an individual recommended for appointment in 2015. This position will serve a term that expires on December 31, 2017.
