Annual Washington Meetings

Feb 23, 2021 Online Board of Directors Meeting - All WCI Members Welcome

Online WCI Board of Directors meeting - open to all WCI members

Due to COVID, our traditional in-person Washington Meetings format has transitioned to an online WCI Board of Directors meeting.  All WCI members in good standing are welcome to sit in.   


Our outreach to Congress has also gone online - the WCI Action Center allows you to communicate directly with your legislators with a click of a mouse- email or Tweet your House Representative and Senators, with our prewritten (but editable) messages, and you can share on Facebook that you stood up for locks and dams!  


Join us again in person in 2022 for one of the premier fly-in events for waterways transportation stakeholders 







Wednesday, February 12, 2020: 


  • Buffet breakfast & networking
  • WCI Board of Directors meeting (open to all WCI members)
  • Keynote luncheon with political analyst Charlie Cook

Widely considered to be one of the nation’s most respected and impartial analyst of American politics, elections and political trends.  As the editor and publisher of The Cook Political Report, columnist for National Journal, political analyst for NBC News and co-author of the upcoming 2020 edition of the Almanac of American Politics, Mr. Cook’s prodigious writing is a direct line to the heart of politics.


Deemed “the Picasso of election analysis” by The Wall Street Journal, he produces the sharpest and most impartial political handicapping in the business, serving as the one-man, go-to-source for Americans who want to be “in the know” about politics.
