| Below are links to information on TRB’s Marine Board and standing committees that have members who may be helpful in providing information within their areas of expertise related to disaster recovery efforts. The websites for each of these committees contain contact information for the chair and a scope that details the expertise of that committee. Officials involved in disaster recovery who wish to contact these experts may do so by contacting Russell Houston, TRB’s Senior Communications Officer, at 202-334-3252, or firstname.lastname@example.org. (Journalists who wish to interview these experts also should contact Russell.)
TRB standing committees identify research needs; provide information to the transportation community on research priorities and procedures; review papers for presentation at the TRB Annual Meeting and for publication; encourage the incorporation of appropriate research findings into practice; and develop special programs, conferences, and workshops. Standing committee members may serve up to three consecutive three-year terms and are considered experts in their field. Standing committees are overseen by TRB's Technical Activities Division.
