SAVE THE DATE for the MOARC/KCIC Spring Trip to DC, March 5 – 8, 2018!

MOARC and KCIC representatives will be making visits to Agency and Congressional offices Monday, March 5th through Thursday, March 8th , as well as, attend the 2018 National Waterways Conference.  Those wishing to can register to attend the National Waterways Conference's Legislative Summit being held in Washington DC 5-7 March (Committee meetings are on Monday with informative general sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings).  The annual legislative summit hosted by the National Waterways Conference will focus on the water resource infrastructure development to support the nation’s waterways and the economic development through strong, secure, sustainable waterways across the nation.  As Congress returns for the second session of the 115th Congress, high on the national agenda is the development of a Water Resource Development Act (WRDA).  A 2018 WRDA would authorize a variety of water resource projects across the nation supporting flood control and waterways infrastructure. Additionally Congress has pledged to move a comprehensive infrastructure package in 2018.  The Legislative Summit provides a great venue for the water resource industry to hear from high-ranking Congressional and Executive branch officials and industry leaders about water resources policy developments and program expectations for the coming year. 

MOARC and KCIC representatives can participate in the Legislative Summit in concert with the MOARC/KCIC Spring Congressional Visit. We will have opportunity to hear of the Administration and Congress’ plans for investment in waterways infrastructure and authorization plans for new water resource projects. The conference provides opportunities to network with principle congressional offices and water resource agencies (i.e. US Army Corps of Engineers, House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, President’s Council for Environmental Quality) during the conference and at the Congressional Reception co-hosted by the Mississippi Valley Flood Control Association. 

The Legislative Summit will be held at The Madison Hotel in Washington, 1177 NW 15th Street, near the Capital on 5-7 March. Registration is underway and can be found on the National Waterways Conference website www.waterways.org.   Hotel information can also be found on the website.  MOARC members interested in attending the summit are encouraged to register soon, and please let us know.
