IISCG Seeks New Members Of Tewing Safety Advisory Committee

The U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) is seeking applications for appointment to membership on the Towing Safety Advisory Committee (TSAC). TSAC is a 16- member federal advisory committee that advises the Secretary of Transportation on matters related to shallow-draft inland and coastal waterways navigation and towing safety.

The advice and recommendations of TSAC also assist the USCG in formulating U.S. positions at meetings of the International Maritime Organization (IMO). The committee usually meets at least twice a year at USCG headquarters, in Washington, D.C. Special meetings may also be called. Subcommittee meetings are held to consider specific problems as required.

The USCG will consider applications for five positions that expire or become vacant in October, 1997, as follows: • two members from the barge and towing industry, reflecting a geographical balance; • one member from port districts, authorities or terminal operators; • one member from maritime labor; and • one member from the general public.

(Applicants should have experience in towing operations, marine transportation, occupational safety and health, environmental protection issues, or business operations associated with the towing industry.) Each member serves for a term of three years. A few members may serve consecutive terms. All members serve at their own expense, and receive no salary, reimbursement of travel expenses, or other compensation from the federal government.

Applicants may be required to complete an Executive Branch Confidential Financial Disclosure Report (SF 450).

To achieve the balance of membership required by the Federal Advisory Committee Act, the USCG is especially interested in receiving applications from qualified women and minorities.

Those persons who have previously submitted applications must reapply as no applications received prior to this solicitation will be considered.

Application forms may be obtained by writing to the Commandant (G-MSO-1), U.S. Coast Guard, 2100 Second St. S.W., Rm. 1210, Washington, D.C. 20593-0001; by calling (202) 267- 1181; or by faxing (202) 267-4570. For further information, please call Lt. Lionel Mew, assistant executive director, at tel: (202) 267-0218.
