We are very excited about the 2018 Navy League National Convention being held in Portland, Oregon, June 6 through June 9. Portland offers ample attractions and events, especially during June. We are looking forward to a great meeting and seeing you there!
Our convention takes place in the middle of the Portland Rose Festival, and coincides with the city's fleet week. The Portland Council is looking forward to welcoming you, and they are busy planning special tours for these special events.
This will be our third year of our special Council President track. We will have additional sessions of interest for all our members as well. We are expanding the content of the convention to appeal to a wider audience, with the goal of providing support to you so you may enrich participation in your local council.
Thank you for your dedication and all you do to support the Navy League.
See you in Portland.
Alan Kaplan, National President Navy League of the United States
Registration for Convention will be available later this the Spring. Check back for more information.
You can book your hotel reservations at the Portland Marriott Waterfront through the special Navy League room block, available at this link. Because this is a popular and busy time in Portland, don’t delay in making your arrangements. The city will likely be very full of visitors for both the Portland Rose Festival and fleet week. Reservations must be made before May 10, 2018. We cannot guarantee the special rate or availability after that date.
Special note about booking your rooms with the Navy League: In order to secure group space and the best price for our hotel rooms, meeting space and meals, the Navy League must contract for a certain amount of guaranteed business for the hotel. It is important that you book your reservations through the Navy League link. Reservations made through booking services such as Expedia, Hotels.com and Trivago often cannot be altered or canceled. You may not be able to earn Marriott loyalty points on those reservations either. They also cannot be credited to the Navy League’s obligation to the hotel. Booking in the official room block allows the Navy League to protect your reservation and keep costs down on future events.
