Coast Guard
Industry Academy 2017

Washington Homeland Security Roundtable launches The Coast Guard Industry Academy in collaboration with the U.S. Coast Guard.

WHSR will host the Inaugural Session November 13-15, 2017, at United States Coast Guard HQ, Washington, DC.

The Washington Homeland Security Roundtable (WHSR) announces the creation of the Coast Guard Industry Academy. The Coast Guard Industry Academy is an unprecedented, in-depth program designed to strengthen Industry collaboration and knowledge of the Coast Guard mission. The program consists of quarterly sessions over a one-year period, which are: the opening session at Coast Guard Headquarters in Washington, DC, three sessions at selected Coast Guard facilities along the East and West Coasts, the Gulf of Mexico, and the concluding session at Coast Guard Headquarters in Washington, DC.

U.S. Coast Guard Officers and Senior Leadership at the initial meeting will open dialogue and participate in several discussions over the three-day session, focusing on major strategic initiatives including: Securing Maritime Borders, Facilitating Commerce, Maritime Security and Counterterrorism, Inland Waterways, Sovereignty and Presence in Polar Regions, and Acquisitions.

The goal is to start the Coast Guard Industry Academy with Senior Industry Executives who maintain a broad organizational authority and responsibility that can share comprehensive Industry knowledge and are able to disseminate Coast Guard information back across their organization. The one-year program is organized such that USCG knowledge and understanding is built with each successive quarterly session, and participants are committing to the full program.
