The Surface Navy Association will have their 2019 West Coast Symposium on 22 August at Pier 2 Naval Base, San Diego. Info is here.
It is only a one day event. There is a Coast Guard focused session, 1315-1400. VAdm Fagan, COMPACAREA, has been invited to speak, but his apparently not been confirmed. The rest of the discussions look to be Navy specific, with not much interest to a Coast Guard audience so there should be plenty of time to see any exhibits.
You do have to register early to get access.
All registrations made to us after 1200 EST August 7, 2019 will not be on access list and will NOT be permitted on base without an escort.
Please remember that all persons in the vehicle must have a photo ID and must be a government issued ID, such as driver’s license or official state issued ID, or official federal government issued ID. The driver must have a current automobile registration.
