Capitol Hill Ocean Week 2013 

For over a decade, Capitol Hill Ocean Week has provided marine professionals, government officials, and ocean enthusiasts with unique venues to network with colleagues, advance policy goals, and mingle with ocean champions – all in the heart of Washington, D.C.

Held in conjunction with World Oceans Day and anchored by the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation's annual Leadership Awards Dinner, CHOW 2013 is the year's best opportunity to shape marine policy discussions and provoke lively conversation about our nation's most critical ocean and coastal issues.

Don't miss CHOW’s expert speakers -- including Members of Congress, representatives of state and local governments, academics, business experts, scientists, and renowned ocean explorers -- leading conversations on the most pressing topics at a time when the stakes have never been higher for the future of our ocean. CHOW is the best opportunitiy to network with colleagues who share your interests in marine policy, ocean science, and what's happening along the coast.

Online registration for Capitol Hill Ocean Week 2013 is now closed, but you can still join us! Registration for CHOW will be available on-site, all week, at the Newseum. We look forward to seeing you!
