Surface Warriors to Meet at Annual Symposium

Wednesday, December 19, 2012

The Surface Navy Association (SNA) National Symposium will be held January 15-17, 2013, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, Crystal City, VA.   The association was incorporated in 1985 to promote greater coordination and communication among those in the military, business and academic communities who share a common interest in Naval Surface Warfare and to support the activities of Surface Naval Forces.   SNA provides for its members support, programs and activities which enable professional growth, personal satisfaction and camaraderie.
“This symposium brings together military, government and industry to highlight our Surface Navy Warriors currently serving, those that have served, and those that will serve in the future,” says SNA President Vice Adm. Ron Route, USN (Ret.).  “Each year the symposium gets bigger and better.  With the impending budget decisions and wide-ranging impacts, this is an important time to hear from the highest levels of Navy, Coast Guard and Marine Corps leadership.”
