Celebrating over 20 Years of Advocacy for the Intracoastal Waterway

Beaufort, SC, October 8, 2020 - The Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway Association will hold its Annual Meeting on Thursday, November 19, 2020. The AIWA is the nation’s only organization dedicated to ensuring the future of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway (AIWW) and represents all waterway users through their mission to secure funding and support for the maintenance of the AIWW.

The AIWA is pleased to present this virtual collaborative event to bring together our members and stakeholders and connect them with federal and state agencies who have leadership roles in managing the waterway. This one-day format will feature sessions led by our industry's leaders and practitioners covering a series of topics for all waterway users. Sessions will include the State of the Waterway-Management & Maintenance Project Updates from USACE Districts; Updates from our Recreational Boating Community-Boat US, NMMA, MRAA, and others; Beneficial Use of Dredge Materials-New Applications and Directions; Updates to Charting and Mapping efforts along the AIWW from NOAA; and Marine Industry and Commercial Operators, Port Authority, Contracting Corporations, and Engineering Design.

“Shifting to an online virtual platform has its advantages and even though we would like to see our members in person, we have the opportunity for increased participation with a virtual platform this year,” says Executive Director Brad Pickel.

The AIWA Annual Meeting presents a collaborative learning environment to share the mutual achievements made within each year, while looking ahead to lay the foundation for increased success as the Unified Voice of the AIWW.

Registration is $75 and sponsorships and group rates are available. To register, visit: atlanticintracoastal.org.
