1Good 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)
2Why 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
3NAVCO 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 **
4The Navy’s Awareness Challenge Relative to the Air Force and Army, the Navy has little presence away from the coast.And this really shows our challenge….and why community outreach is SO important to the Navy. Without it…we are invisible to most of America.Because the Navy's primary Fleet concentration areas are on both coasts, communicating the Navy's mission and contribution to national security throughout the country is a significant challenge.This is especially evident when you consider the substantial inland presence enjoyed by the Army and the Air Force. In addition to the green and light blue markers indicated on this map, every state has Army and Air Guard contingents, which further enhance the services’ outreach profile throughout the country.Okay, so lets review again the challenge - After more than 10 years of war, the country’s interests/focus is on issues other than the military…..American’s likelihood to recommend the military to a son, daughter or grandchild continues to decline (and with the steady decline of our Veteran’s Population I just don’t see that changing)…..historically, we’ve NEVER been viewed as the service that is most important to national defense…..and as the map shows….simple geography works against us!So what are we doing about it?Next slideGreen = Army Light blue = Air Force Dark blue = Navy Red = Marines
5WHY 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.
