2016 Ended Well
I am delighted to report the Naval Institute closed out 2016 well in numerous categories.
For the fifth year in a row, our membership grew. For the fourth consecutive year, the Naval Institute Foundation scored impressive numbers. Once again Foundation’s performance builds resiliency in our organization by attracting donors to “invest” in the Naval Institute through sponsorships for essays contest and underwriting other important mission work.
We substantially increased our outreach with USNI News and social media. The numbers of members and others attending our conferences increased.
The growing number of sponsored essay contests—and submissions—is rewarding and is generating great energy and content on current issues.
We are off to a good start in 2017 and look forward to serving you by expanding the forum with quality books, magazine content, news, and conferences. We welcome any suggestions you have on how we might better serve.
