Brownwater University 2019 - Houston Area

BROWNWATER UNIVERSITY is an educational conference bringing together stakeholders across all facets of brownwater operations in the Western Gulf. Listen to panels on topics such as equipment & personnel, operations, navigation safety, and ship & barge interactions, and try your hand at a pushboat simulator. For the past decade, marine transportation stakeholders in conjunction with the U.S. Coast Guard in the Houston region, have developed and presented a two-day curriculum covering: U. S. Coast Guard regulatory practices; The Business of Towing; Role of regional and national stakeholder organizations; Brownwater vetting requirements; U.S. Coast Guard waterways management issues. The material is presented by professionals from local U. S. Coast Guard units and inland towing operator personnel. An optional half-day of simulator time is expected to be offered to all attendees. WHO can and should attend?  One-half of the attendees are U. S. Coast Guard personnel from local and regional units and the remaining half are from marine transportation companies. The newest of employees or most-seasoned of Captains are welcome. All that is required is an interest to understand the perspective of the individuals presenting the material and the ensuing discussions. Attendance slots are on a first-come-first-serve basis given space limitations. COST?  FREE: Thanks to the generosity of local stakeholders, the only expense is your time. But you must register! WHAT TO EXPECT A healthy dialogue between industry personnel and the U. S. Coast Guard; Insight into towing company business drivers; The operational intricacies of navigating tows on the world's longest and most complex inland waterway system!
