Member Testimonials: Value of WCI Membership

Mary Ann Bucci

Executive Director, Port of Pittsburgh Commission

"WCI is a leader in advocating for the inland waterway’s infrastructure needs, especially for funding for the operations and maintenance of our nation’s lock and dam system. Whether it’s a major federal policy change, or a regional project initiative, they are always available to help.


WCI’s team works tirelessly to educate and serve its entire membership. Their knowledge of the issues, and relationships in DC and across the country, enable our members to speak in one voice to key decision-makers. While representing the Port of Pittsburgh Commission in meetings in DC, I’ve seen first-hand the respect WCI has earned from both elected officials and staff in advocating for our shared interests."
