WHSR will host the Opening Session March 17-19, 2020, at United States Coast Guard HQ, Washington, DC

WASHINGTON, Feb. 11, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The Washington Homeland Security Roundtable (WHSR) recently announced Class 2 of the Coast Guard Industry Academy. The Coast Guard Industry Academy is an unprecedented, in-depth, one-year program designed to strengthen Industry collaboration and knowledge of the Coast Guard mission.  

U.S. Coast Guard Commandant Karl Schultz will open the Academy at USCG Headquarters in Washington, DC.  As part of this dialogue, USCG Senior Leadership will participate in several discussions 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 opening session will include the Baltimore USCG Yard and a visit to TRACEN Cape May, NJ.

The Coast Guard Industry Academy is reserved for 40 Industry Senior Executives at the level of VP (or commensurate title) and above. The goal is to embed Executives who maintain a broad organizational authority and responsibility, 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 one-year program. Participant organizations must be listed at www.sam.gov.
