The Seminar Objective is to provide an opportunity for attendees to learn about and to discuss: WSMC Members’ advantages, WSMC spill response capabilities, spill prevention measures and developments in spill response, contingency planning, and safety policies and rules/regulations.  The seminar will also provide an opportunity for local and national stakeholders to exchange ideas and information in order to facilitate environmentally safer maritime commerce in the region.

We expect over one hundred people to attend our seminar, including members of the US Coast Guard, Washington Department of Ecology, oil spill response contractors, consultants and vendors, as well as members of WSMC. This is a free seminar provided to inform WSMC members and others in the oil spill response community about oil spill response and WSMC member responsibilities.  Presentations will address both local and national issues that impact oil spill response in the Northwest and Puget Sound area.  The seminar will provide a great opportunity to network and meet with industry professionals.
