Washington, DC (January 17, 2023) – The Board of Directors of the Sea Services Leadership Association (SSLA) has approved a new set of bylaws.

The new bylaws formally describe SSLA as a one-of-a-kind nonprofit organization, and open more opportunities to “Mentor, Inspire and Lead” women in uniform. 

SSLA President Capt. Emily Bassett shared why the new bylaws are so important to SSLA’s mission.

“SSLA is always looking for ways to grow and to provide new and exciting opportunities for our members and our supporters,” said Bassett. “These bylaws do exactly that!

“Please read the new bylaws,” continued Bassett. “I hope they inspire you to join SSLA and, if you are interested in serving, to email any one of our staff members to volunteer.”
