Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We would like to support the growth of the Submarine Force.

Education and advocacy; we connect industry and defense leadership so that they can be better informed.

We host events with presentations by various defense and industry leaders where members can connect with one another. We release a quarterly publication which serves to educate and provide a platform for members to share ideas. We provide active-duty support and awards. We also have a speaker’s bureau that educates the public about submarines and the benefits they provide to our defense.

We updated our database in order to better connect with members, we expanded our outreach, and we recently moved so that we will be able to host more events and catalyze more action from our members.
