Our Chapters are Shipmates helping Shipmates!
We execute our mission and our programs locally via our Chapters. Divided into two ANSO Regions, Eastern and Western, we currently have 18 Chapters throughout the country located in Fleet Concentration Areas to support our Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, and Merchant Marines shipmates. Every Chapter has a set of leadership Officers/Petty Officers who run their respective Chapter and who report to the respective Region Vice President.
“I expect our chapters to continue our mission in providing programs that support the mentoring and career development of our members. Moreover, I expect our chapters to support the regional symposiums that are planned by the National ANSO Leadership. Further, I expect our chapters to reach out to their respective Hispanic communities in support of youth programs that provide leadership, education, moral and physical activities. Chapters are free to build their respective finances using the National Treasurer and our Non-Profit status.” – CDR Blanca Rosas, USCG (Ret), ANSO President, 2019-2021
