Re: SFMX Invitation 1700 Thursday, May 13, Pier 35
I anticipate observing the meeting of the Harbor Safety Committee of the San Francisco Bay Region. This committee is a mandate of the California Oil Spill and Response Act of 1960. Afterwards, along with Captain Mark Shafer and others, I will be attending the San Francisco Marine Exchange annual May Day social.
The council is seeking a member willing to represent the council at the Harbor Safety Committee meetings. Please let me know if you might care to take this assignment on.
