The Coast Guard announced in the Federal Register that it is seeking applications for membership on the Chemical Transportation Advisory Committee.

Completed applications should reach the Coast Guard on or before May 29, 2018.

The Coast Guard will consider applications for eight positions that become vacant Sept. 16, 2018. The membership categories are: Chemical manufacturing, marine handling or transportation of chemicals, vessel design and construction, marine safety or security, and marine environmental protection.

All members of the Chemical Transportation Advisory Committee are Representatives. Each member serves for a term of three years, and may serve no more than two consecutive three-year terms. A member appointed to fill an unexpired term may serve the remainder of that term. All members serve at their own expense and receive no salary, reimbursement of travel expenses, or other compensation from the Federal Government. The Committee meets at least twice per year. It may also meet for extraordinary purposes. Its subcommittees may meet to consider specific problems as required.
