Congressional Towboat & Tugboat Tours

AWO held a busy spring and summer of tugboat and towboat tours for Members of Congress and their staffs. These tours are an important part of AWO’s Congressional outreach strategy, providing legislators with hands-on industry education and allowing AWO members to build and strengthen the grassroots relationships that are vital to advancing our legislative agenda.

In 2017, four state legislators and 112 congressional staffers participated in 16 tugboat and towboat tours nationwide. See the full report here.
