Coral Listers,

This announcement is outside the core of what is normally covered on the 
Coral List, but I think it is still a potential opportunity many would 
be interested in.  The Hydrographic Services Review Panel is soliciting 
applications for membership.  NOAA is interested in broad geographic 
representation on this FACA committee, and such committees have been 
historically under-represented by individuals from coral reef locations, 
in particular the U.S. territories.  The period for submission has been 
extended until July 24, 2009.

NOAA is seeking applications for members to serve on the Hydrographic 
Services Review Panel, a Federal advisory committee which provides 
advice to NOAA on topics including hydrographic surveying, nautical 
charting, water level and current measurements, and geodetic and 
geospatial measurements.

Consider submitting an application if you have expertise in areas such 
as geodetic, geospatial, tides, or current measurements; hydrographic 
surveying; vessel pilotage; port administration; marine transportation; 
or coastal and fishery management.

Please note that 1) officers or employees of the United States are not 
eligible to apply for membership, and 2) part of the appointment process 
includes completing a financial disclosure form.
