About the Convention


ANSO is very sensitive to our current fiscal environment, and we do not want to be a fiscal burden on our members and the Sea Services. The board of directors has overhauled the way we execute our mission and have reevaluated our conference/symposium process. Starting this year, our annual three-day conference, which averages gross total of $350,000 for 400 attendees, has been canceled until further notice. In its place, we have instituted a process of at least three one-day symposiums that will occur throughout the year - at least one in each of our regions (Eastern, Central and Western) hosted by one of our local chapters.


These one-day seminars will focused on career management and actual onsite mentoring, and will be closely aligned to key career milestone events like promotion boards, selection boards, etc. Since these seminars will be focused for our local and regional members, the cost will be minimal. Further, we expect to take advantage of today's technology and social media to broadcast these seminars to our non-regional members via our new and improved website.


As of today we have conducted two symposiums, our initial Eastern Region Symposium occurred In Crystal City, Virginia on 6 September 2013.  Our second was the Western Region Symposium occurred in San Diego, California on 27 February 2014.

The next symposium will return to the Eastern Region once again.  It will be held at the Officer's Club at Fort Belvoir, Virginia on Tuesday 9 September 2014.  Again we will partner with Latina Style, as they hold their National Symposium at the Washington Marriott at Wardman Park on the 10th of September.

You must register for the Eastern Region Symposium.  In order to make the most of these symposiums, please bring your evaluations, fitness reports, and other performance records with you when you attend the seminar.






ANSO’s Regional Leadership Symposium will brings together Hispanic officers, civilian executives, enlisted personnel, and other senior leaders in the Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, and maritime industry to learn from, network with, and mentor one another, as well as conduct professional development training.

Our diversity efforts will focus on identifying, recruiting, and retaining Hispanics in our Nation’s Sea Services, and on establishing community outreach programs that will develop close relationships with Hispanic centers of influence. Participants are encouraged to share ideas and experiences, network, and enjoy the benefits of a great professional leadership conference.

There will be mentoring sessions so make sure you sign up when you first arrive at the event.  We will receive service updates from the Sea Service Chiefs.  All activities are designed to support you in improving your professional development and providing guidance on overcoming challenges while celebrating your achievements.
