The U.S. Coast Guard, along with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, will hold nationwide public discussions on navigational aid technology and how it will affect the future of America's waterways.

The Future of Navigation-21st Century Waterways public listening sessions will be held in several locations across the country and will provide venues for open communications between various federal agencies and U.S. Maritime Transportation System stakeholders to discuss the joint federal agency initiative to use modern technology to support a safer, more efficient, more secure and environmentally-sound Marine Transportation System.

These listening sessions will provide the maritime community — both professional and recreational mariners — and waterways stakeholders an opportunity beyond traditional venues to express their emerging needs for navigational information and service delivery systems necessary to improve the safety and efficiency of transits on the nation's waterways.

Scheduled 2014 sessions are listed below:

  •     May 1: Prospector Hotel, Juneau, Alaska
  •     May 7: 1350 Port of New Orleans Place, New Orleans, La.
  •     May 19: Harborview Center, Honolulu, Hawaii
  •     May 22: Renaissance Hotel & Waterfront Conference Center, Portsmouth, Va.
  •     May 22: Embassy Suites, 110 SE 17th St., Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.

  •     June 10: U.S. Customs House, New York City, N.Y.
