The National Boating Safety Advisory Council is a Federal advisory committee that operates under the provisions of Federal Advisory Committee Act, (Title 5 U.S.C., Appendix). It was established under the authority of 46 United States Code 13110 and advises the U.S. Coast Guard on boating safety regulations and other major boating safety matters. The Council usually meets at least twice each year at a location selected by the U.S. Coast Guard. It may also meet for extraordinary purposes. Subcommittees or working groups may also meet to consider specific issues.
Each member serves for a term of three years. Members may be considered to serve a maximum of two consecutive full terms. All members serve at their own expense and receive no salary, or other compensation from the Federal Government. The exception to this policy is when attending National Boating Safety Advisory Council meetings; members may be reimbursed for travel expenses and provided per diem in accordance with Federal Travel Regulations.
We will consider applications for the following seven positions that will be vacant Jan. 1, 2019:
• 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 public.
