The Columbia River is the lifeblood of
The Columbia River Steamship Operators' Association hosts bi-monthly educational luncheons for our members and industry partners, focusing on a wide variety of topics, as well as updates from our government partners on happenings in and around our ports. We also host numerous industry and social events, including a Spring Fling, Summer Picnic, Annual Christmas Luncheon and occasional morning meetings with Federal, State and local government representatives focused on relevant and timely issues. Further, we work to regularly hold “educational field trips” and other outings for our members to engage and further their understanding of the maritime community.

Over the past century, our focus consistently remains on working to make the Columbia River region increasingly popular for commercial ships and shippers to come and do business. We attribute our successes to the strong networks we have built with our private sector partners and stakeholders, our public sector agencies and regulators, and our Federal and State legislators.
The CRSOA welcomes members who supports our mission, goals and objectives. Companies benefit by taking advantage of our network, join in our luncheons and other seasonal social events, make use of our members’ talent and resources, and adding their voice to that of the CRSOA general membership.
