The Surface Navy Association is holding their 34th National Symposium at the Hyatt Regency, Crystal City, January 11-13, 2022. The theme will be “The Competitive Edge.”

There does not seem to be too much Coast Guard specific content until Wednesday. The only Coast Guard representative I see on the schedule, prior to Wednesday is CMC Devin Spencer, USCG, Command Master Chief, Atlantic Area, scheduled for the Enlisted Roundtable on Tuesday, 0830-1015.

Wednesday, we have:

  • 0730-0850 Future of the Enlisted Sailor: A Leadership Conversation with MCPON Russ Smith, USN, Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy and MCPOCG Jason Vanderhaden, USCG, Master Chief Petty Officer of the Coast Guard.
  • 1400 ā€“ 1450 Coast Guard Keynote with ADM Karl Schultz the Commandant.
  • 1500 ā€“ 1630 Coast Guard Cutterman’s Call, Moderators: VADM Steven Poulin, USCG, Commander, Coast Guard Atlantic Area (A) and MCPOCG Jason M. Vanderhaden, USCG, Master Chief Petty Officer of the Coast Guard

There should be lots of interesting exhibits.
