    REGISTRATION OPEN FOR 26TH ANNUAL SEA SERVICE LEADERSHIP ASSOCIATION’S JOINT WOMEN’S LEADERSHIP SYMPOSIUM

    Women from all service branches invited to attend


    Washington, D.C. (November 5, 2012)– The Sea Service Leadership Association (SSLA) opened registration for its 26th annual Joint Women's Leadership Symposium, the largest gathering of military women in the nation. Women from each of the five service branches are invited to register. The two day symposium will be held March 10-12, 2013, at the Gaylord National Hotel & Convention Center in National Harbor, Md. Attendees may register at www.sealeader.org.

    For the past 26 years, the symposium has been an invaluable tool for servicewomen, giving them opportunities for professional growth, leadership development and mentoring.

    With the theme, “Stronger Self, Stronger Service,” the symposium will provide participating servicewomen with tools for both their personal and professional lives, to make them better leaders. The symposium will feature a robust agenda on a variety of topics such as Bystander’s Intervention, Combating Sexual Assault, Improving Communication Skills, and an Executive Female Flag Session.

    “The Joint Women’s Leadership Symposium is a powerful and energizing event that captures the imagination and impacts not only lives and careers, but as an extension, the entire nation.  This is a vitally important event which fosters an open environment, allowing women from all of our service branches to meet and learn from one another, as well as understand and appreciate the trails blazed by women who have come before them," said retired Rear Adm. Wendi Carpenter, chairperson emeritus of SSLA. "The symposium provides these women with a unique forum to address issues specific to them and their service.  It's a valuable and enriching experience for all involved, including the many men who often attend and join in the discussions."

    Last year’s symposium was the largest gathering of military women in the world with some 1,700 attendees. Participants heard speeches from pioneering female leaders including Assistant to President Obama and Chief of Staff to First Lady Michelle Obama Tina Tchen; Former Under Secretary of Defense for Policy Michèle Flournoy; and Maj. Allison Black, a.k.a. “The Angel of Death,” the first female AC-130H Spectre navigator to open fire in combat operations, among other noted female leaders.

    Established in 1978, SSLA is the only non-profit, non-political organization recognized by the United States Sea Services dedicated to providing professional development through networking, education, and mentorship of women from the United States Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard.

A welcoming home for our Troops.

Welcoming home our men and women doesn't end after the crowd disperses, it MUST continue on for the life of the Veteran! They've served us, now we will serve them with programs that work so they reintegrate into society.

We are a national public benefit nonprofit organization that educates American Communities about best practices to serve Veterans.  We honor their service by empowering Veterans to apply their training and skills to successfully transition to productive careers and enterprises.

We provide free vocational training 24/7 to all of our members through our website, in addition to local events.  We believe the tenet that American Communities are the ultimate beneficiaries when Veterans claim their benefits and invest in productive endeavors.

The SWVBRC enlists the support of members of local Communities like you to increase Veteran awareness of the value of obtaining a VA card and receiving earned benefits.

Sponsorships, donations, volunteers and support from communities like yours enable us to reach out to Veterans and empower them to transition back into successful, productive enterprises that ultimately benefit all Americans and support future generations.
