The AV program falls under the USCG Auxiliary National Marine Safety Department Navigation Division. There are items of interest to the AV posted on this page. The annual Operations Workshop Guides should be checked. Every year, except 2001, has information related to the AV program. Also the Up Top In Operations newsletters should be checked as these often contain information useful to the AV. There is a link to the newsletter archive of the Operations Department page. News items are first posted to the Auxiliary What's New page before they are posted to the Operations Department page. After 30 days, the items are moved from What's New to the department page. Always check the What's New page for the latest information.
