As we begin 2013, it is time for the annual election of our Board of Directors and Editorial Board. The ballot is even more important this year because Members are also voting on a revised Constitution and By-Laws (C&BLs) for the Naval Institute. We have printed the entire proposed revised C&BLs and circulated them to Members with the ballot. We look forward to receiving your vote.
There are several changes worth noting; however, one thing that is not proposed to change is the mission of the Institute. Our mission will remain to provide an independent forum for those who dare to read, think, speak, and write to advance the professional, literary, and scientific understanding of sea power and other issues critical to national defense.
