    SSLA hosted a Mentoring Lunch at the Pentagon Dining Room on Thursday 28 March 2013.  It sold out within a few days, and 54 Service Women attended the lunch.  

    Plans are in the works for another Mentoring Lunch at the Pentagon.  FYI, anyone with a CAC ID can get into the Pentagon, and if it's your first time just email SSLA requesting more information on logistics.  If you are in a different geographic area and would like to plan your own Mentoring Lunch, SSLA can offer online registration services.

    Due to the ongoing budgetary considerations, the Sea Service Leadership Association (SSLA) 2013 Joint Women's Leadership Symposium scheduled for March 10-12 has been postponed. Our planned date is June 5-7, 2013 and pends approval by the Services, which we are optimistic we can gain support for.

    We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and hope you can still attend and participate in this unique and valuable symposium. We look forward to the 2013 symposium which brings together the largest gathering of women in uniform that focuses on service readiness, and remains dedicated to networking, education and professional development for Armed Forces service members. We will keep you updated with news regarding exciting developments in the conference agenda and the guest speakers scheduled to attend.
