THE NAVAL INSTITUTE The   Naval   Institute   is   an   association   for   the advancement  of  professional,  literary,  and  scientific knowledge in the Navy.

You   are   eligible   for membership.   Dues of $24 per year entitle you to 12 issues  of  the  monthly  magazine  U.S.  Naval  Institute Proceedings.     As  a  member,  you  can  purchase  any Naval  Institute  book  at  a  reduced  price  and  most books   not   published   by   the   institute   (except Government  Printing  Office  books)  at  a  20  percent discount.

Originally    known    as    the    Women    Officers’ Professional   Network,   the   organization   hosted luncheons   featuring   prominent   speakers   and representatives   of   organizations   whose   policies affected women of the sea service. Today WOPA serves as a forum for the exchange of  information.     The  WOPA  includes  the  following goals: Benefiting,   fostering,   and   encouraging   the educational  and  professional  development  of women officers Providing  forums  for  discussion  of  common issues   and   concerns   affecting   women   in military career fields Promoting career planning for women officers in the Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard Providing   educational   materials   concerning matters of interest to women in the sea service You can obtain more information about WOPA by writing to the following address: Women Officers’ Professional Association P.O. Box 1621 Arlington, VA  22210 YOUR OLD TEXTBOOKS In   the   exuberance   of   graduation   and   being commissioned,  do  not  hastily  throw  away  or  sell  all your Naval Academy or college textbooks.   You may find some of them useful in the years to come.   You can ship professional books, packed separately from other effects and labeled as such, on change of station orders   in   addition   to   your   weight   allowance   for transportation of household goods. READING LIST The   list   of   publications   that   follows   is   not   an official “must list” of Navy reading.   Its purpose is to introduce you to the types of publications available to you   and   familiarize   you   with   some   of   the   titles. Policy  and  technology  in  the  Navy  change  rapidly. By  reviewing  the  information  in  these  publications, you can keep abreast of noteworthy events, changes in technology, changes in safety procedures, promotion procedures  and  requirements,  and  other  information that will assist you in doing your job as a Navy officer. NAVYWIDE PUBLICATIONS AND NEWS SOURCES The following Navy news sources and periodical publications provide official information on a variety of subjects: Navy  News  Service,  the  Navy’s  weekly  wire service,   provides   the   latest   news   and   policy information to the fleet.   It is released via message by the   Navy’s   Chief   of   Information   (CHINFO)   each Friday and is sent to every Navy command.
