Okinawa Chapter


Capt Marie Banks

Welcome to the OkinawaChapter of the NNOA.


Greetings Staff, Members and Distinguished Guests! We are kicking this year off on a high note thanks to the commitment and efforts of members past and present. This year we are committed to empowering our chapter through community involvement and a tailored experience for our members and guests to maximize participation and cooperation. In addition to our well-known annual programs we have introduced additional social, networking and fundraising events to build camaraderie, increase mentorship and strengthen community relations from the inside out.

No promotion or appointment comes without responsibility and we stand on the shoulders of giants. We are relying on the collective effort of the team (staff, members and guests) to accomplish the mission of defining what diversity and inclusion means to the Sea Services and promoting and enabling that agenda. We need all hands involved in order to get to the bottom line upfront of what it takes to attract and retain a more diverse officer corps.

I am excited about our chapter and I look forward to meeting and working with you to accomplish the mission this year!
