Message from the NHA President:
Get Ready for NHA’s 2015 Symposium – Forward Firing and Lethal!
Attention NHA Members and Non-Members alike – we are less than 2 months away from our 2015 NHA Symposium! NHA is the official professional organization for the Department of Defense and United States Coast Guard Rotary Wing communities. Our primary goal is to highlight the remarkable accomplishments of our various communities while simultaneously expanding their reach and influence across the Naval Aviation Enterprise (NAE).
One of the most effective means we employ to spur our communities forward is via our annual NHA Symposium, currently scheduled for 11-15 MAY 2015 in sunny San Diego, CA. If you have yet to attend, you are missing out! We are excited about the lineup we have this year, which includes not only energizing events both planned and sponsored by our corporate partners, but also an extraordinary schedule of professional briefings and forums. A motivated cadre of active duty personnel (many of them your peers) has dedicated herculean amounts of time and effort to facilitate our most successful NHA Symposium ever!
The symposium, and our organization for that matter, is made possible (and stronger) through our collective membership. I am not only referring to the initial membership fee, but as well the time and labor selflessly dedicated to the organization by each and every one of our regional and squadron representatives. Of note, our membership numbers are directly tied to the amount of influence we can have as a universal rotary community. Rotary Wing units are at the forefront of the NAE’s growth and global influence – as such, there has never been a more critical time to both support and be a contributing, invested member of your professional organization.
The theme for this year’s Symposium is “Forward Firing and Lethal”. Know that our theme was not selected because of its “wow” factor; instead, it was chosen because our collective weapons systems and capabilities are advancing at unprecedented rates, augmenting already robust USN, USMC and USCG warfighting capabilities and facilitating each organization’s ability to aggressively and skillfully promote peace and democracy around the world. The battlefield has become highly asymmetric and dynamic, and rotary warfighters are perfectly suited to handle the challenging landscape we are now tasked to navigate.
From Pax/Mail/Cargo missions to life-saving events, from embarked Law Enforcement Detachments to SCAR sorties, we ALL impart a daily and lasting impact on our services and in our respective communities. We are eager to promote and provide a forum for vigorous discussions and presentations covering both where we currently stand as a rotary community, and what the future has in store for the services, unit-level commands, personnel and our NHA Enterprise – and of course HAVE SOME FUN!
I encourage you to be a part of our NHA future. If not already one, become a member and sign up for the 2015 NHA Symposium. Make no mistake about it – we are a vital and prominent player in defense of this great Nation we call home…We Are Rotary Wing Aviation.
See you at the 2015 NHA Symposium!
