Fw: Navy League News Release March 2, 2011
Navy League News Clips for September 18, 2009Ahoy All,Sea-Air-Space Exposition is a wonderful annual Navy League event. If you have the headquarters of a defense contractor near your council, Sea-Air-Space is a outstanding selling point for corporate NLUS membership recruiting. A lot, in fact almost everyone who makes defense / homeland security decisions, attends this gathering.We Navy Leaguers are all welcome to attend. It's impressive and the Gaylord Center, National Harbor, Maryland (Oxon Hill - just south of the beltway) is fresh and new and impressive as well. Accommodations there or in adjacent hotels can easily rise above $200 per night.I have located a Wyndham hotel, Days Inn Alexandria South, 3.2 miles north that offers rooms for a third the cost. Teddy and I will be staying there for the NLUS Board of Directors meeting June 22-25. Can't personally vouch for this Days Inn, some reviews are positive and others are negative.Anyway, if going to Sea Air Space, let me know and I can let you know who else from our region will be there as well.Anchors Aweigh,PhelpsPhelps HobartSenior Vice President, Pacific Central RegionNational DirectorNavy League of the United States----- Original Message -----To: nlsac@...Sent: Wednesday, March 02, 2011Subject: Navy League News Release March 2, 2011FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: Tom Van Leunen
