October Chapter Lunch with Captain Barbette Lowndes, President of USNAAA Women's SIG
Come and meet our first woman USNA graduate speaker, Captain Barbette Lowndes. Barbette is the President of the USNAAA Women's SIG, an alumna of the first USNA class to graduate women, and a member of the Board of Trustees!

What an honor to have Captain Barbette Lowndes as our Guest Speaker in October. She will share the vision and the collective efforts of Women's Shared Interest Groups (SIG) around the country that gather to foster deeper bonds with USNAAA members at large.

The USNAAA Women's SIG was the first group to be approved by the USNAAA and was formed in order to: 


  • Provide a platform for alumnae, alumni, and interested members of the USNA community to address issues of particular concern to women. 
  • Increase and strengthen the presence and leadership of women within the Naval Academy, the Naval Service, and the communities within which we live and work. 
  • Provide opportunities for alumnae mentoring and networking.  


Under Barbette's leadership, this group has brought alumni together from around the country to perpetuate the history, traditions, memories, and growth of the Naval Academy — paving the way for future generations of USNA leaders. Come join us for what is sure to be a unique and insightful discussion!
