NSL Leadership and Staff

The NSL is governed by a Board of Directors that is elected by the membership. The Executive Committee is chosen by the Board of Directors and provides oversight throughout the year. The day-to-day operations of the NSL are directed by a paid Executive Director with guidance from the President. Additional expertise is provided by liaisons from the active duty submarine force and an Advisory Council. The Submarine Technology Symposium and the History Seminar have their own NSL chairpersons. Local chapters are issued Charters by the NSL and elect their own officers.
