Wendy MilesMessage from the President

In January, PSNBA will be meeting with Naval Air Forces and Third Fleet Command in San Diego. This is in preparation for our annual trip to Washington, D.C. We will be seeking information that will help us support PSNS efforts in San Diego, as well as in Kitsap.
This month we met with Keyport and discussed their continued growth and long term work schedule objectives which will also be included in our DC issues list.
We are attending the monthly FMA meetings to continue to spread the PSNBA message and get closer to our members. If your organization would like a representative from PSNBA to speak at your next meeting, please let us know.
Wendy Miles, M.A.
