Science Panel Nominations Process
The Coastal Resources Commission’s Science Panel on Coastal Hazards is accepting nominations for new members to fill four vacant seats – two designated for coastal engineers and two designated for coastal geologists. The panel, which currently has 11 members, is being expanded to 15 members by the commission. Members serve four-year terms and provide the CRC with scientific advice on relevant topics.

To recommend a nominee, contact any member of the CRC, the Coastal Resources Advisory Council, or current members of the Science Panel. A complete nomination includes a resume, CV, or other qualifying information with respect to their knowledge and experience in coastal hazards processes. Nominations must be received by June 28.
