The Association of the United States Navy’s (AUSN) events provide our members and sponsors with an opportunity to make new connections, share information and maintain relationships. We hold events throughout the year on Capitol Hill, throughout the Greater Washington region and across the country.
Our signature events include:
Navy Now Forums — this event is held quarterly and is regarded as a premier networking event for defense executives. As the only event of its kind, this reception is a rare opportunity for business leaders to hear from and meet senior Navy officials. The VIP reception provides an opportunity to meet with the guest speaker. This event gives attendees an opportunity to hear first hand the Navy’s course of action on training, equipment, personnel and other areas of interest.
AUSN’s Capitol Hill Reception — this annual event gives AUSN the opportunity to present the AUSN Legislative Advocacy Award and the AUSN Legislative Proponent Award. The AUSN Legislative Advocacy Award is presented to a senator and member of Congress for their exceptional leadership and support of Veteran issues; the AUSN Legislative Proponent Award is presented to a staff member from both the Senate and House for their work on veteran issues and their focus on keeping the U.S. Navy strong. This event is held on Capitol Hill.
Annual Business Meeting — once a year the full membership gathers to advance an agenda that supports Sailors, active and retired, former Sailors and veterans, and the U.S. Navy during this two-day meeting. AUSN’s leaders recognize set the legislative and program agenda for the next year. We also present the following junior officer of the year (JOY) awards: FT Staff, FTS Line, SELRES Staff, SELRES and the Nurse or Medical Corp Bea Ratner Award.
