Annual Meeting & Member Reception Were Terrific
At our Annual Meeting held on 11 May in Washington, D.C., we reported the Naval Institute’s key 2016 results:
• We increased membership for the fifth year in a row—finishing 2016 with more than 51,000 members.
• We finished in the black for the fourth year in a row.
• We are making tremendous progress on our 2016–2018 Strategic Plan.
We were honored that Acting Secretary of the Navy Sean Stackley gave the keynote remarks. He reminded us that the Naval Institute’s mission of providing an independent forum for those who dare to read, think, speak, and write remains crucial to the profession and the advancement of ideas. Current events both at home and abroad demonstrate that U.S. sea power is as critical today as it has been at any time in our history. This is an important time to have a strong Naval Institute.
