At the 2004 Fall meeting of the National Boating Safety Advisory Council (NBSAC), the Office of Boating Safety proposed to assemble a Goal-Setting Recommendation Panel. NBSAC endorsed this proposal. To facilitate this, the Coast Guard invited representatives of the recreational boating community to participate on this panel.
The Coast Guard held the meeting on February 8 and 9, 2005 at the Crystal City Sheraton Hotel, 1800 Jefferson Davis Highway, in Arlington, VA. The panel considered, analyzed, and proposed recreational boating safety performance goals that can be supported by the government, industry, and the boating public. A representative of the panel presented its conclusions at the April 2005 NBSAC meeting. Minutes of the panel's February 2005 meeting may be obtained from the person listed above under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION.
A professional facilitator will moderate the second meeting.
