New regional strategies to maintain and promote the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway will be the main topic of discussion when the AIW Association meets next month.

AIWA’s annual meeting will take place Nov. 20-21 in Jacksonville, Fla. The conference begins with reports from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which is charged by Congress to maintain the waterway.

The conference will then shift to a region-wide focus in keeping with this year's theme, "Can Regionalism Save the Waterway?" Attendees will examine issues such as sediment management to prevent channel shoaling and waterway economics from a regional perspective.

The program also includes strategy sessions for continued maintenance funding from state, federal and other potential sources.
