Whilst NAVSM is a national organisation with a national executive committee, there are city hubs meetings which provide training, updates and the opportunity to share good practice.
There is an information pack for new members, which is especially valuable to those new to post but is also an excellent source of reference. Useful resources can also be found on the NAVSM website.
Another major benefit is the annual training seminar where members hear from high profile national speakers and attend and participate in workshops and study groups. The topics discussed are relevant to professional and personal development and can be used as evidence for continuing professional development (CPD)

o Access to three FREE training workshops per year
