In his CEO Notes (page 6) summarizing some of the Institute’s highlights for 2017, Vice Admiral Pete Daly called out a few that involved the Proceedings team. Clearly, this has been an incredibly productive and busy year. All this was made possible because of the Naval Institute’s secret sauce—the Board of Directors, Foundation Board of Trustees, Editorial Board, and professional staff. Please check out the masthead on page 2. All the members listed there contributed to give voice to the authors we publish who sought to help the naval profession deliver the finest Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard.
The Board of Directors create the conditions that keep the Institute financially sound and focused. In addition, Board members serve as essay contest judges, author contributions, participate in conferences, and suggest topics and recommend authors to the staff.
