The Military Speakers/Community Leaders Reception connects senior leaders of the region’s major commands to the defense community to close the civilian-military knowledge gaps and build partnerships.

To coincide with Navy week, we are honored to have Naval Inspector General Vice Admiral John Fuller as our guest speaker.  Navy Week is designed to educate Americans on the importance of Naval service, understand the investment they make in their Navy and to increase awareness in cities which might not otherwise see the Navy at work on a regular basis
