A&SP Meetings

The A&SP holds bi-annually “members only” business meetings each year, once in the Spring and once in the Fall. Our by-laws require a majority vote of the trustees to approve the A&SP annual “Margin of Excellence” financial support budget, the minutes of each previous meeting and any significant proposals that are up to approval.

Additionally, during the business meeting, our Executive Director provides a status report on the prep school program and each of our committees are given time to report their activities and successes.

Our Chairman recognizes Trustees with recent notable achievements and Trustees that are being elevated to “Emeritus” status. And all too frequently, our Chairman leads us in a moment of silence for those who have passed.

A highlight of our business meetings is the presentation of prospective Trustees by the Nominating committee for induction. New members receive a full organizational briefing and orientation.

After the closed member-only business portion of the meeting, guests are then invited to speak.  Each fall and spring the USNA Superintendent, the Athletic Director and one of Navy’s coaches address the Trustees providing an insightful perspective on the health and direction of the Brigade, the athletic programs, facilities and activities within the yard. They share their time and information in grateful appreciation of the Trustees for their continuous support.

During the course of our bi-annual meeting weekend the Trustees are treated to a luncheon and an awards banquet where relationships are kindled, ideas are shared and our common cause is reaffirmed.
