We are very excited about the 2018 Navy League National Convention being held in Portland, Oregon. June 6th through June 9th. Portland offers ample attractions and events especially during June. We are looking forward to a great meeting and seeing you.
Our convention begins in the middle of the Rose Festival, and Fleet Week kicks off at the end. The Portland Council is looking forward to welcoming you and are busy planning special tours.
Convention Program—-Support for you as a Navy League member
This will be our third year of our special Council President track and additional sessions of interest to all our members. We are expanding the content of the convention to appeal to a wider audience with the goal of providing support to you to enrich your participation in your local council.
Thank you for your dedication and all you do to support the Navy League.
See you in Portland.

CHECK BACK FOR a DRAFT SCHEDULE in 2018
Registration for Convention will be available in January.
You can book your hotel reservations at the Portland Marriott Waterfront through the special Navy League room block. Links to that room block will be available shortly and all members will be notified when that becomes available. Because this is a popular and busy time in Portland, don’t delay in making your arrangements. The city will be very likely full of visitors for both the Rose Festival and Fleet Week. Reservations must be made before May 11, 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 cancelled. You may not be able to earn Marriott loyalty points on those reservations as well. 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
