The National Boating Safety Advisory Council need new members. The Coast Guard announced on Tuesday. March 11 that it is taking applications for membership on the council. People can apply until May 12.

The 21-member council advises the Coast Guard on recreational and other boating safety. The council consists of seven representatives from boating and other industries, seven representatives of state governments and seven reps from the general public. At least five of the public representatives must come from national boating safety organizations.

The council meets at least biannually. Subcommittees also may schedule other meetings.

It needs to fill seven vacancies that expire at the end of this year, including three state, two industry and two public members.

Those who applied for the call for memberships starting in 2014 need not reapply; the Coast Guard will consider those applications. Those who applied in a previous year are asked to apply again, though.
