Corporate Member Days

CMD is a program exclusively for Corporate Members and is perhaps the most valuable benefit of Corporate Membership. It is an opportunity for Navy leadership to share their vision and direction with industry, usually after the federal budget has been issued. Major financial and programmatic issues are discussed. The keynote is usually a business and technical update from Naval Reactors and a member of Congress is invited to speak.

Discussions focus on major acquisition and technical issues in undersea warfare. This event is a prime networking opportunity, enabling contractors, subcontractors and government personnel to discuss the challenges of delivering the capabilities needed by the Submarine Force.


Tuesday 20 April 2021

Organizations which have been corporate members of the Naval Submarine League for 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 and 35 years will be recognized throughout the day.
