We invite you to explore the many benefits of joining the Gulf Intracoastal Canal Association.

Our efforts impact manufacturers, port authorities, terminals, navigation districts, utilities, chambers of commerce, municipalities, drainage districts, legal firms, banks, suppliers, distributors, shipyards, carriers, and more.

If keeping our waterways safe and navigable is a priority for you, we need your help to minimize costs associated with utilizing one of the nation’s busiest waterways, reduce pollution, and combat the very real threats posed to this major contributor of our nation’s economy.

There is no other association like ours dedicated to addressing major issues affecting the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway. Our collective goal is to continuously promote and protect this economic engine. We can only achieve this goal through strong membership which provides a credible voice to state and federal agencies.

Without your help, we would be unable to support our growing list of initiatives, and a diverse membership is crucial to the Waterway’s future. Working together, we can promote, protect, and preserve this valuable marine resource for decades to come.

Your Membership will ensure GICA continues to provide:

  • Industry leadership in support of federal and state partner response efforts during navigation disruptions, including near real time navigation bulletins and updates to help inform customers and minimize associated supply chain impacts;
  • Advocacy for major channel and infrastructure improvement projects;
  • A timely and robust navigation safety and hurricane response and recovery information sharing system;
  • Industry engagement to ensure shoreside growth and expansion properly accounts for navigation interests and the continued viability of the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway;
  • A widely respected, and well-known voice of industry with federal and state agencies, and elected officials, at all levels of government.
