Monday, May 11, 2009

The U.S. Coast Guard is seeking applications for membership on the Navigation Safety Advisory Council (NAVSAC). NAVSAC provides advice and makes recommendations to the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security on issues related to the prevention of collisions, rammings and groundings, including, but not limited to Inland and International Rules of the Road, navigation regulations and equipment, routing measures, marine information, diving safety and aids to navigation systems.

The Coast Guard will consider applications for six positions that expire or become vacant in November 2009. Four positions are reserved for recognized experts and leaders in organizations having an active interest in the Rules of the Road and vessel and port safety and two seats are reserved for professional mariners, recreational boaters or representatives of the recreational boating industry.

Application forms should reach the Coast Guard by June 19. Contact Mike Sollosi or John Bobb of the Coast Guard at (202)372-1532 or by fax at (202) 372-1929.
