Why are YOU going to ASBPA's National Coastal Conference? See what six others have to say...

Coastal Mnews Today and the American Shoreline Podcast Network are going because we're covering the conference and bring to you, our readers and listeners, the highlights of America's premier coastal conference. Join us and we'll see you in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina from October 22-25!

Peter Seidle, Applied Technology & Management, West Palm Beach, FL
        To see who are the winners of the inaugural Best Restores Shores projects and learn about their projects.   It’ll be an exciting conference to see presentations not only on beaches but also about inland water and estuarine projects.

Taylor Zimmerman, Graduate Student, Stevens Institute, Hoboken, NJ
        I am going to ASBPA this year to present work that I’ve accomplished at Stevens and to hear about other projects being done throughout the nation.

Derek Brockbank, ASBPA Executive Director, Washington, DC
        I’m going to present and share my insight on a complicated policy issue facing beach communities – the Coastal Barrier Resources Act, which has major pros and some cons in preserving beaches. And also to learn and gain insight on complicated science and technical issues facing beach communities, from the nearly 200 fascinating and timely presentations and posters.

Reuben Trevino, Galveston Island Park Board, TX
         I’ll be in a Myrtle Beach to not only share our Island’s lessons learned but continue to learn from other communities facing similar challenges.

Dawn York, Moffatt & Nichol, Wilmington, NC
         The ASBPA National Coastal Conference in Myrtle Beach will provide a technical platform for Carteret County to present the Bogue Banks Master Beach Nourishment Plan, the first 50-year non-federal shore protection project permitted in North Carolina. The first shore protection project of the 50-year plan was just completed in summer 2019. We can’t wait for our team, including Moffatt & Nichol, federal and state partners and Carteret County Shore Protection Office, to showcase this project at ASBPA in October.

Bill Hanson, Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Company, Washington, DC
          I am going because the Myrtle Beach renourishment projects have been among the most successful in the country and we want to learn how best practices from those projects can be used in other parts of the country.

Dolan Eversole, University of Hawaii Sea Grant College Program
           I am going to reconnect with friends and colleagues and stay informed on the latest policy updates and project examples. This lets me stay abreast of cutting edge technology, practice and evolving coastal policy.

All this plus 16 CEUs for the conference and 8 for the short course!
