Its membership consists of a vast network of inland marine compliance professionals sharing lessons learned and best practices in risk management, regulatory compliance and serves as a unified voice on behalf of inland operators for reasonable and optimal solutions for the continual improvement of safety, security and environmental protection, while sustaining economic viability.
