NAVCO Outreach Capabilities The Way Forward in 2015 Calendar for America Planning Conference December 9, 2014
Good News! “But when I looked at this picture, it just happened to occur to me - this IS a great story.” - Don Roberts, WAVY-TV 10/Fox 43 (Hampton Roads, VA)
Why Outreach? "Community and public outreach is a crucial Departmental activity that reinforces trust and confidence in the United States military and in its most important asset – people." - Former Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel “Educating the American public about the capability, importance, and value of today’s Navy is an essential responsibility of those who serve.” - Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Jonathan Greenert
NAVCO Mission “To inform, educate and increase understanding of the Navy, its people and its importance to national security and prosperity.” ** Specific emphasis on U.S. markets that do not enjoy a significant, everyday Navy presence **
The Navy’s Awareness Challenge 4 Green = ArmyLight blue = Air ForceDark blue = Navy Red = Marines Relative to the Air Force and Army, the Navy has little presence away from the coast.
WHY REORGANIZE? Diversification: Navy Week-centric focus had become a limiting factor, consuming a disproportionate amount of resources and obstructing the employment of new outreach tactics. Fiscal realities: NAVCO had to position itself to succeed in all future possible budget environments, necessitating a more agile, adaptable and scalable organization. Opportunities: Forced to operate in a near-zero budget environment in 2013, NAVCO experimented with and validated new outreach tactics that proved effective in sharing the Navy story nationwide.
