The Cooperative Charting Agreement  between the United States Power Squadrons (USPS) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), first executed in 1963, is the most effective user-participation program in all the Federal services.  Of all the other groups that has signed agreements, the USPS is the only remaining volunteer organization still reporting on the agreement which includes, Adopt-A-Chart Program, and Aeronautical Structures.
