The Seattle Council is the host for this year’s Navy League Northwest Region Conference. They have gone out of their way to create a fantastic weekend package that is attractive for all Navy League Members. The conference will be held at the Best Western Executive Inn, a 3 star hotel in the shadow of the Space Needle. The emphasis for this meeting is to provide Northwest Navy Leaguers Fun and Fellowship at a great location and at a great price.

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.
