2018 Annual Safety and Combined Regions Meetings

New Orleans, LA
Join your fellow AWO members in New Orleans for AWO’s upcoming 2018 Annual Safety and Combined Regions Meetings!  The annual meeting of both the Coastal and Interregion Safety Committees will continue to highlight the transition to Subchapter M and will incorporate representatives from the U.S. Coast Guard in those sessions. Furthermore, lessons learned – in an attempt to promote awareness and prevention – will continue to be a key factor of these meetings along with a training session. Other topics under consideration include mental health of mariners, fatigue management, suicide prevention, and drug testing protocols (e.g., marijuana, opioid addiction).
AWO Regional Meetings provide members and associates with an opportunity to learn about key industry issues and to strengthen business relationships. AWO staff is on hand to present on topics like maritime industry political advocacy, towing vessel safety, and the dynamic regulatory environment. Local Coast Guard, Army Corps and Congressional staff typically attend the meetings and speak to topics that directly impact your business.

You must be an AWO member or invited guest to attend; please contact Anne Fazzini at afazzini@americanwaterways.com with any questions.
