2019 Southern Region Roundtables

The Southern Region Roundtables are being coordinated by AWO's Southern Region Vice President, Mark Wright (mwright@americanwaterways.com).  The roundtable events are designed to provide important updates on national, regional and safety issues while reducing time away from the office and providing a forum for open dialogue between AWO members and staff.  To further the efficiency and effectiveness of the roundtable gatherings for AWO members, most roundtables will have other events in conjunction with them, including Coast Guard luncheons, tugboat/towboat tours, and/or grassroots visits.  We encourage all our members to participate in a roundtable event near you!  These meetings are members only, and there is no cost to attend. 
To register for these events, please log in to the AWO website here and go to your Membership Dashboard page. Please contact Anne Fazzini (afazzini@americanwaterways.com) if you have any logistics questions or Caitlin Kidd (ckidd@americanwaterways.com) if you need assistance with registration.
