April 11: Navy League Northwest Regional Conference

Regional conferences are held annually to bring together council members from the Pacific Northwest to discuss, share, and discover successful ideas that are working in other councils. These opportunities to learn from each other are not restricted to council officers. All Navy Leaguers are encouraged to come, meet one another and learn about the successes of the Navy League.

The Navy League Northwest Regional Conference will be held on 10-11 April at the Bellevue Red Lion Hotel
