    NAVSAC meets at least once a year at Coast Guard Headquarters, 
Washington, DC or another location selected by the Coast Guard. It may 
also meet for extraordinary purposes. Its subcommittees and working 
groups may meet to consider specific problems as required.
    Selected individuals will serve as either Special Government

or employee of the executive or legislative branch who is retained, 
designated, appointed, or employed to perform temporary duties (either 
on a full-time or intermittent basis) for not to exceed 130 days during 
any period of 365 consecutive days. The definition of SGE also includes

without regard to the number of days of service. In general, SGEs 
provide Federal advisory committees with their own best independent 
judgment based on their individual expertise. (See 18 U.S.C. 202(a).)
    A Representative Member is an individual who is not a Federal 
employee (or a Federal employee who is attending in a personal 
capacity), who is selected for membership on a Federal advisory 
committee for the purpose of obtaining the point of view or perspective 
of an outside interest group or stakeholder interest. While 
representative members may have expertise in a specific area, 
discipline, or subject matter, they are not selected solely on the 
basis of this expertise, but rather are selected to represent the point 
of view of a group or particular interest. A representative member may 
represent groups or organizations, such as industry, labor, consumers 
or any other recognizable group of persons having an interest in 
matters before the committee.
    We will consider applications for seven positions that expire or

safety; two persons from among professional mariners, recreational 
boaters and the recreational boating industry; two persons with an 
interest in maritime law; and one person who is a Federal or State 
official with responsibility for vessel and port safety.

and vessel and port safety are considered to include organizations 
representing vessel owners and operators of vessels operating on 
international waters and/or the inland waters of the United States; the 
Federal and State maritime academies; maritime education and training 
institutions teaching Rules of the Road, navigation, and electronic 
navigation; and organizations established to facilitate vessel movement 
and navigational safety. Members from these organizations are appointed 
to express the viewpoint of the organizations listed above and are SGEs 
as defined in section 202(a) of title 18, United States Code and will 
not be appointed as Representative Members.
    Professional mariners are considered to include actively working or 
retired mariners experienced in applying the Inland and/or 
International Rules as masters or licensed deck officers of vessels 
operating on international waters or the inland waters of the United 
States, and federal or state licensed pilots. Recreational boaters and 
the recreational boating industry are specifically identified groups 
that members may represent. Members from these groups are appointed to 
express the viewpoint of the groups listed above in which they serve or 
have served and are not SGEs as defined in section 202(a) of title 18, 
United States Code and will be appointed as Representative Members.

section 202(a) of title 18, United States Code and will not be 
appointed as Representative Members. Individuals who are Federal or 
State officials with a responsibility for vessel and port safety are 
not SGEs as defined in section 202(a) of title 18, United States Code
