General Membership Meeting (June 2017)

Cornucopia of Rhode Island: A Library Community of Color
General Membership Meeting
Saturday, June 24th at 10:00 A.M.
Naval War College, Library
686 Cushing Road
Newport, RI
Thanks to Gina Brown for hosting. 

Please note the following:


Whether you’re coming to the NWC campus to participate in an evening lecture or you are interested in visiting the Navy’s “Home of Thought,” we look forward to having you aboard. We want your visit to go smoothly but please remember the campus is part of a secure Naval facility. Only students, staff, faculty and other approved visitors are permitted to enter the base and then drive onto campus.  

Therefore CORI must get clearance to visit. 
Please contact Gina with the following information if you wish to attend the meeting or have any questions regarding security clearance.  Per Gina:

“I just received the protocol for groups of visitors on a weekend. I will need each person’s Name, Date of Birth, and SSN.  Their information will be input on a classified document that goes to Naval War College security, on to Norfolk VA for Big Navy security checks and then bounces back to Newport with a yay or nay.  The whole process takes two weeks, so the sooner we can gather everyone's info the better. “

Please contact Gina at:
Email: Browng@usnwc.edu and telephone number 401.841.6500
