Food: Heavy hors d'oeuvres
Tickets:   Alumni Members of chapter: $15. Associate & NAPCNT Members: $25. Non-members: $35.

About our speaker: 
Our speaker will be riveting.  COL Art Athens, USMC (Ret) is the Director of the U.S. Naval Academy’s Vice Admiral James B. Stockdale Center for Ethical Leadership and a member of the Academy’s Senior Leadership Team. He spoke at the Chapter Officer's Forum in Annapolis in May. It's tough to impress a bunch of salty old Alumni, but he had all of us ready to reenlist. Click here for his full biography.
About the event: 
We've wanted to do a classy event with an amazing speaker for some time. Our membership has supported every effort of the chapter, particularly the Blue Chip Dinner, so generously and graciously over the years. Holding an event at the Gaylord and flying in a speaker isn't cheap, but we want this to be a very inexpensive event for our dues-paying members. 
This event will sell out. If you're a local alumni but not a chapter member: Join the chapter prior to registering for the reception - you need to be a member to buy member tickets. Click here to become a member today.
  • In recognition of our Alumni members, we are offering them first shot at tickets. Alumni members (of all membership categories) may purchase tickets beginning now. Tickets are $15 for members and all their guests. 
  • Parents Club and Associate Members may purchase tickets starting July 24. Tickets are $25 per guest.
  • Non-members may purchase tickets starting July 24. Tickets are $35 per guest.
Our venue: 
We chose the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine as a central location - it's the nicest venue we could find midway between Dallas and Fort Worth. The event is planned for heavy hors d'oeuvres, and there are great restaurants in the Gaylord and nearby Grapevine for dinner afterwards.
We are still working on getting a favorable room rate at the Gaylord, in case folks want to stay over and make a night of it (and enjoy the water park with kids!). Stay tuned!
Finally, we are re-printing nametags for all chapter members. Please make sure your profile info is updated by July 20th so we can get your nametag in our order! 
This is going to be a great evening. Please join us!
