Maj Matt Bowman, USMC
Welcome to the Monterey Chapter of the NNOA.
We are excited about the reinvigoration of the NNOA Monterey Chapter! NNOA in Monterey provides a unique opportunity to engage and network with a large and closely connected population of officers representing all Sea Services, Army, Air Force, and International Students at the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) and the Presidio of Monterey. The chapter is poised to serve as the vehicle for meaningful engagement between officers across a spectrum of services, ranks, occupational specialties, and warfare communities.

The Monterey Chapter of the National Naval Officers Association (NNOA) planned on celebrating Women’s History Month in March 2020 prior to COVID restrictions. This year marked the Centennial Celebration of Women’s Suffrage (Ratification of the 19th Amendment). The planned event included comments from NPS President, VADM Rondeau and guest speaker Julie Packard. Ms. Packard is Executive Director and Vice Chair of the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Board of Trustees. Her biography can be viewed here.
