The National Boating Safety Advisory Council (NBSAC) is a Federal advisory committee under 5 U.S.C. App. (Pub. L. 92-463). It advises the Coast Guard regarding regulations and other major boating safety matters. NBSAC's 21 members are drawn equally from the following three sectors of the boating community: State officials responsible for State boating safety programs, recreational boat and associated equipment manufacturers, and national recreational boating organizations and the general public. Members are appointed by the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.

NBSAC normally meets twice each year at a location selected by the Coast Guard. When attending meetings of the Council, members are provided travel expenses and per diem.

We will consider applications received in response to this notice for the following position which was vacated on June 26, 2007: One representative of recreational boat and associated equipment manufacturers. The appointee for this position will serve the remainder of the previous member's term, which expires December 31, 2008.

Applicants are considered for membership on the basis of their particular expertise, knowledge, and experience in recreational boating safety. Applicants from previous years should submit an updated application to ensure consideration for the vacancy announced in this notice. Applicants for the vacancy notice published on April 26, 2007 in 72 FR 20862 do not need to submit any additional application materials. Members may serve consecutive terms.
