Seven positions will be vacant on Dec. 31. including representatives responsible for state boating safety programs, recreational boat and associated equipment manufacturers and national recreational boating organizations or the general public.

Applications are due to the Coast Guard on or before May 23. Please visit the Federal Register www.federalregister.gov for details.
