Please note that Council Presidents and Board Members have an opportunity to learn about Board member accountabilities. If you have been reading about the potential effect that sequestration will have on DoD and the Sea Services, then Jack Ritters Presentation should be very enlightening. We have a lot going on with respect to support for ship visits. And if you are a Council President, you will have an opportunity to share your successes, frustrations and/or ask questions.I hope you will join us on Saturday, August 25, 2012.
