Back to Issue

SIU Port Agent Tracey Mayhew has been appointed to the U.S. Coast Guard’s National Maritime Security Advisory Committee (NMSAC). She received the three-year appointment June 5.


The committee was established under authority of the Maritime Transportation Security Act of 2002 (Public Law 107-295), and operates in accordance with the provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee Act. NMSAC makes recommendations to the secretary of the Department of Homeland Security via the commandant of the Coast Guard.


The full committee normally meets at least twice a year, with working- group meetings and teleconferences taking place more frequently. Collectively, they tackle a wide range of maritime security issues, including mariner credentialing, shore leave, maritime domain awareness and much more.


Mayhew is based at the SIU hall in Anchorage, Alaska. In addition to being a regular participant in Coast Guard and Transportation Department forums in the nation’s capital, she also serves as an elected representative for the Fisheries Section of the International Transport Workers’ Federation.
