Event description
Convened by the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation every June, Capitol Hill Ocean Week brings together national and global stakeholders.

About this Event

Capitol Hill Ocean Week (CHOW) creates a space for attendees to interact with peers and opinion leaders to advance conservation and public policy goals for our ocean and Great Lakes. Speakers, invited guests and attendees include Members of Congress and staff, Administration officials, local and state government representatives, business executives, military officials, academic luminaries, and leaders in the nonprofit sector.

On June 9, 2020, the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation will hold our annual Ocean Awards Gala. Held in conjunction with Capitol Hill Ocean Week, this special event recognizes ocean champions with Lifetime Achievement, Leadership, Conservation Innovation, and National Marine Sanctuary System awards. Guests enjoy cocktail and dessert receptions, and an innovative menu featuring sustainable seafood. In addition to a great program, the event offers an exciting silent auction, supported by businesses and donors across the country.

Proceeds from the Ocean Awards Gala benefit the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation, the national non-profit partner of the National Marine Sanctuary System. The Foundation funds an extensive network of programs and partners, public and private, who conduct research, educate, advocate, and conserve America’s ocean and Great Lakes for our children and grandchildren.
