Pacific Region Annual Meeting

Long Beach, CA
March 8-9, 2022
COVID Notice: All hotel guests and meeting attendees are required to wear masks at all times when in public spaces throughout the hotel, in meetings and at event functions. Masks should only be removed when actively eating or drinking in the restaurant or in the hotel's meeting spaces.
Join your fellow AWO members in Long Beach for our Pacific Region Annual Meeting! Register now on your member dashboard! We will discuss current regional advocacy and regulatory efforts with some organizational governance tied in for good measure! Plus, U.S. Coast Guard sectors will join us to talk about prevalent regulatory happenings. Finally, at the end of this jam-packed day, join attendees for the evening reception to relax and enjoy each other's company. This event is open to AWO members only. Please contact Caitlin Clark with any questions.
Please note that a Regional Quality Steering Committee (RQSC) Meeting will occur the following day. The Pacific RQSC is the West Coast arm of the Coast Guard-AWO Safety Partnership and is a forum to discuss opportunities for agency-industry collaboration to enhance safety and environmental stewardship in a cooperative, non-regulatory way. We have found that members find these conversations invaluable. All members are welcome.
