Join Us

Port Bureau members represent every sector of the maritime industry, from agents to admiralty lawyers, shippers to stevedores, and terminals to truckers.  With that spirit in mind, 2018 will represent a transition year for the Port Bureau to better serve all of our members.  

For 2018, we will be introducing a new tiered membership structure.  We believe this  new three-tiered structure allows us to continue serving all members with our long-standing benefits while offering new ways for members who are interested in stepping up their level of involvement.  

Associate Membership

This level, at $750, is the same price as 2017 and similar to your current membership. The key difference is that Associate membership profiles in our Annual Membership Directory will now be half-page length.

Corporate Membership

Port Bureau advocacy efforts are supported to a greater degree at this level. Corporate members are eligible for nomination to serve on our Board of Directors, in leadership positions on our committees, and have the opportunity to serve on our new Advocacy Advisory Board.

Executive Partnership

Partner members demonstrate their dedication to being leaders in the port community. This membership level enables our staff to promote the port region, travel for advocacy work, and perform beneficial regional research. Exclusive Partner benefits include brand recognition in Port Bureau digital and print publications, invitations to private events, and enhanced business development opportunities.

If you are interested in joining this diverse group of port leaders, fill out an application, or email membership@txgulf.org.
