The National Waterways Conference 2015 annual meeting will take place in Little Rock Arkansas from September 16 to 18.
The McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System (MKARNS) has been upgraded from connector to corridor as part of the Maritime Administration’s America’s Marine Highway Program. The upgrade opens future funding opportunities for port and waterways expansion projects.
Attendees at this year’s conference will learn from federal officials from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and U.S. Department of Transportation as well as regional experts who will discuss the multiple benefits of Arkansas’s water resources bring to the region and the nation.
Thursday evening September 17 includes dinner and cocktails at the Clinton Presidential Library.
The event includes an optional golf outing at 1:30 p.m. on Friday September 18 at Chenal Country Club.
The conference rate at The Marriott Litte Rock is available until August 23.
