The 614 companies that comprise the Amphibious Warship Industrial Base Coalition (AWIBC) will host a congressional forum on Capitol Hill with Commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps General David H. Berger, key members of Congress, U.S. Navy and Marine Corps leadership, and industry leaders to discuss the importance of cost-effectively and efficiently constructing amphibious warships required by our nation.
Built for survivability, U.S. Navy amphibious warships are unique combat vessels that deploy and support missions anywhere in the world, in any condition and on short notice. These warships make it possible for the U.S. Navy and the U.S. Marine Corps to respond swiftly and aggressively from sea and air in times of crisis, from major combat operations to humanitarian assistance and disaster relief.
AWIBC advocates for Congress to provide funding for the sustained and stable construction of amphibious warships vital to the mission of the U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps.
By joining the Coalition, you will have an opportunity to advocate for amphibious warship funding and to underscore the importance of amphibious warships to our country’s security and global stability. Membership eligibility requires that a company be an approved supplier to the Qualified Shipbuilder of U.S. Navy amphibious warships. Membership is restricted to approved suppliers. Individuals without an affiliation to an approved supplier company are not eligible for membership.
There is no membership fee for joining AWIBC. All Coalition activities are voluntary. However, members are responsible for the cost of their participation in Coalition activities.
