BenCoonsNAOWelcome to the National Administrative Department.  We focus on the internal, or in-house, aspects of the squadrons and districts.  We are comprised of two committees with distinct focal points:


 1.  National Membership Committee (MEMCOM):  focus is on the individual member;  anything regarding recruiting or retaining a member;  involving members through boating or civic or social activities;  and supporting a member through offering unique member benefits and recognition is found here.  Membership retention is key.


2.  National Squadron Development Committee:  focus is on the squadron and district organizations, whether developing a brand new squadron, offering leadership or operations training, assisting squadrons and districts recruit volunteers, as well as nurturing existing squadrons.  Programs are developed, presented, and revamped with squadron growth in mind.
