NWC Annual Meeting Set for Portland

Friday, July 07, 2006
The National Waterways Conference, Inc. will hold its 2006 Annual Meeting in Portland, Oregon on September 6-8. The NWC has not convened its Annual Meeting on the west coast since the organization was founded in 1960. This year’s Annual Meeting, with the theme, Prepare Today for the Needs of Tomorrow, is bringing together key government and industry decision makers from throughout the nation to address current and emerging issues that potentially affect the future viability of the nation’s ports and waterways.

The two-day program will include presentations by regional leaders concerning opportunities and challenges faced by navigation and flood control interests, such as endangered species compliance, levee protection and transportation congestion. Leaders from nearly 400 businesses, industries, public agencies, and regional waterway groups are expected to attend the meeting. The meeting will be held in conjunction with the Arkansas Waterways Commission, the Inland Waterways Intermodal Cooperative Program group of the Maritime Administration and the Regional Navigation Design Team of the Corps of Engineers.

The conference will be held at the Benson Hotel, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is conveniently located in downtown Portland.
