CONFERENCE PREVIEW — Navy Lodge Conference – Driving Navy Value

The Navy Lodge Program will be “driving Navy value” for the guests it serves during the 2011 Navy Lodge Conference, which takes place at Shula's Hotel and Golf Club in Miami Lakes, Fla., from April 11-14.

Michael Bockelman, Navy Exchange Service Command (NEXCOM) vice president and Navy Lodge Program director, told Military Club & Hospitality that approximately 60 Navy Lodge managers, assistant managers, headquarters personnel and interns are scheduled to attend the conference for four days of training and networking.


MILITARY LODGING — Lodging At-A-Glance

FURNITURE — Standardized Case Goods

Casegoods are essential components of any military lodging facility. After all, who could go without such room necessities as a dresser, nightstand and desk when staying on base?


Benefits Of Refinishing

Impacted by the same concerns faced by the civilian sector, the military is taking a closer look at the sustainability of limited natural resources and the reduction of energy consumption, as well as taking aggressive actions to control and reduce costs.



TENTS — Providing Protection

Spring is here, and the summer is just around the corner. As the seasons change and the weather gets nicer, Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) personnel are planning a full slate of outdoor events for servicemembers and their families to enjoy over the next few months.


Two essential components for any MWR outdoor event are tents and canopies. Regardless of the activity, tents and canopies provide much-needed relief from the hot sun or inclement weather. In addition, these temporary structures can show off military pride with digitally printed insignias or logos.


Military Club & Hospitality recently spoke with tent and canopy manufacturers to discover some of the latest trends and multiple uses of tents and canopies in the MWR community.
