What started as a small, daylong gathering in 2001 is now Capitol Hill Ocean Week (CHOW), the nation’s premier annual conference examining current marine, coastal, and Great Lakes policy issues. CHOW 2019 includes three signature events: the CHOW Conference, the 17th Annual Ocean Awards Gala, and CHOW Hill Day.
