Black Commissioned Officer Advisory Group
Voting Membership - Seeks New Members
Deadline Date: 31 July 2008

The Black Commissioned Officer Advisory Group (BCOAG) is seeking dedicated, enthusiastic officers to serve a 3-year term beginning January 2009. Several positions will be available as a result of current voting membership term expirations. Self-nominations are encouraged.

BCOAG is a collective public health professional body whose primary mission is to provide advice and consultation to the Surgeon General on matters related to public health and the Commissioned Corps of the U.S. Public Health Service (Corps). In addition, BCOAG serves as an advocate for African-American officers regarding their:
  • Career and professional development activities; and
  • Participation and representation in activities of the Corps.
BCOAG's membership consists of officers from the Department of Health and Human Services' Operating Divisions/Staff Divisions and non-HHS organizations that are routinely staffed by Corps officers. BCOAG meets monthly via teleconference. Voting members must lead and/or actively participate on a standing or ad-hoc committee and attend meetings regularly.

If you are interested in being considered, please request an application form (which includes a space for supervisory approval) from the contact listed below or visit the BCOAG Web page at http://www.bcoag.org.
