The National Ocean Industries Association (NOIA) wields the combined clout of every one of its member companies as it advocates before Congress and the Executive Branch and influences industry-related policy decisions.
NOIA facilitates member access to regulatory and legislative processes, provides customized advice on policy issues and works to favorably impact policy decisions relating to the offshore industry.
NOIA builds solid working relationships with legislators and their staff through its staff, its members and its political action committee.
National leaders are frequently invited to speak at NOIA meetings.
Each spring a meeting is held in Washington, D.C., to better facilitate interaction between NOIA members and policy makers in Congress and the Executive Branch.
Facilitating Industry Relationships
NOIA represents all facets of the domestic offshore energy and related industries and is dedicated to the safe development of offshore energy for the continued growth and security of the United States.
NOIA hosts the two largest annual gatherings of senior executives in the offshore energy industry. Members meet in the spring and fall to discuss important offshore energy issues and hear not only from those organizations that directly work within the industry but those outside who affect the industry.
NOIA also engages well-known policy makers and pundits to speak at its meetings.
While the meetings are purpose- driven, they also provide an opportunity for members to network with fellow senior level executives from the broad spectrum of the offshore energy industry.
