You are invited to join the Mississippi Department of Marine Resources at our annual coastal meeting to discuss the State of Our Coast on Monday, May 6, 2019 at the IP Casino Resort Spa in Biloxi, MS. This meeting is a chance to bring together state, federal and local government, along with academia, non-profit organizations and corporate businesses by offering networking, collaborative information and leveraging opportunities to effectively address issues of concern.

The theme for the 2019 State of Our Coast is “Power of Partnerships.” We are happy to announce that this year’s meeting will be held in conjunction with the Mississippi “Partners in Preparation” Summit (MSPIP) May 6-9. The goal for State of Our Coast is to discuss how Mississippi and its partners are progressing into the future through restoration initiatives using regional collaboration and sound science. State of Our Coast will focus on restoration and resilience planning that emphasizes those activities and opportunities across the region, including Mississippi’s three coastal counties. Those attending will be updated on the Governor’s Oyster Council Restoration and Resiliency Plan, Red Snapper season and partnership projects with other agencies that enhance and conserve marine interests of the state.

Once registered, an event coordinator will contact you with room block details and information regarding the evening Vendor Reception at the IP’s Studio B on Monday, May 6.

We look forward to working with you on a productive 2019 State of Our Coast conference.
