The enthusiastic reaction to the Naval Institute’s Strategic Plan initiatives and the number of energized members present at the Annual Meeting on 11 April were unmistakable signs that the Institute is moving ahead with a bold new agenda.
The Annual Meeting was a very positive step forward, providing an important opportunity to meet and share views as we revitalize the Institute in the months and years to come. Original Good Morning America host David Hartman’s conversation with Vice Admiral Bob Harward riveted the lunch audience. Admiral Harward provided a thoughtful insider’s perspective on complex issues from Afghanistan to Iran, and from Syria to Pakistan, during this period of historic change.
In accordance with the Institute’s Constitution and By-Laws, we announced the election results. The following members were elected to the Naval Institute Board of Directors:
RADM Dan Bowler, USN (Ret.)
VADM Nancy Brown, USN (Ret.)
VADM Herb Browne, USN (Ret.)
CAPT Karl Hasslinger, USN (Ret.)
Dr. Jack London, CAPT, USN (Ret.)
CAPT Dave McFarland, USN
Mr. Ed Miller
VADM Norm Ray, USN (Ret.)
