1: Thank you for your support of the National Association of Superintendents of Naval Shore Establishments (NAS-NSE) Puget Sound Naval Activities Centennial. We are taking this opportunity to look back, share our place in Naval History and honor the men and women who came before us with their tremendous leadership and vision. The mission that started by the Master Mechanics back in April 1912 lives on today through our daily efforts of the important task of maintaining and modernizing of Navy today. As we look forward to our next 100 years, our thoughts and ideals will remain the same. We strive to provide the best service to our fleet through our craftsmanship, skill and support to our workforce. Superintendents bear these responsibilities, like our military associates, in solemn recognition of offering their best efforts to nurture, apply and develop those priceless skills essential to the American Nation. The National Association of Superintendents regards with pride its long standing tradition of fostering such efforts. This is fully recognized in the credo that we continue to this day... We render SERVICE - give and lead SKILL - and by true dedication and loyalty, demonstrate SUPPORT. Dwight Otis NAS-NSE National President

3: The History of the National Association of Superintendents -Naval Shore Establishments | On April 19, 1912 in Waverly Hall, Brooklyn, New York, Delegates representing Master Workmen employed at the East Coast and West Coast Navy Yards met to form a National Association of Master Workmen of Navy Yards and Naval Stations. This meeting focused the conviction of a breed of master craftsmen turned leaders, that goals of attainment were realized best through cooperative venture in an aura reflecting community interests. The purpose of the National Association was defined as " to promote the welfare of the members of Local organizations, and by so doing endeavor to increase the efficiency of work at Navy Yards and Naval Stations". The conditions conductive to this meeting , ascribed to this pre-World War 1 period, were dismal indeed. The ever-imposed burden of servicing the fleet with financial curtailment, administrative and legislative measures to invade and curtail established functions and the many resultant removals and transfers of Navy Master Workmen understandably induced the strong feeling of uncertainty in tenure and incapability of providing adequate performance. Following this organizational meeting, a representative committee was immediately sent to secure an interview with the Secretary of the Navy in an effort to establish a closer relationship with the Navy Department than had ever before existed. That this objective was attained was evident at the following annual meeting held in Washington, D.C. Recognition of the contributions of the Master Workmen to the Navy Yard's accomplishments were not being evaluated as members of a cooperative venture of civilian and military leadership. Master Mechanic in the Navy's industrial shops had many facets of responsibility usually not assigned to their counterparts in American industry. As well expressed by a senior Naval Officer in the past, "The word Master originally came form a Latin word meaning great". It came to denote a feudal chief or c commander, governor, or one exercising authority. In another sense, it meant a man whose teachings or precepts one accepts and follows. Still a third meaning was one who had attained great skill in the use or application or anything. The term Master Mechanic combines all three. A master Mechanic was one who had attained great skill in his craft, whose teachings and precepts the younger man | accepted and followed; and who was the chief or commander of this own and allied crafts in a naval shipyard or other large naval industrial establishment. In an Army, it is the division commanders who must train the men and who must have high-spirited and skilled men properly equipped at the right place at the right time to ensure victory. At the naval industrial facilities, it was the Master Mechanic who must handle men, machines and materials with wisdom, patience, and skill to carry out the program of top management and to ensure the timely and economical completion of any task, however difficult. Over the ensuing years, Master Mechanics have had to adopt to changing technology, management philosophies, and facility reorganization. In 1943, Master Mechanics divided into two categories based on their level or authority and scope of operations. The position of Foreman was created and although a Foreman performed the same duties and required the same basic qualifications as a Master Mechanic, the size of his shop and scope of his responsibility was less than that of Masters. In April of 1969, the titles of Master Mechanics and Foremen were changed again to reflect an organizational with the Naval Shipyards. Shops of similar trade disciplines were grouped together, and an additional layer of management was created to manage each group. Master Mechanics and Foreman became Superintendents, and a new level manager became a Group Superintendent. Group Superintendents normally have three of more subordinate Superintendents. These title changes more clearly identified Navy Industrial managers with other production managers with the private sector of our national industrial complex6 Now as we envision the future the role of Superintendent is taking shape as a change agent. This responsibility will evolve to adapting diversity into the workplace, waste reduction innovation into our processes and barrier removal to allow flexibility, and agility to support staffs and workforces. The Superintend, as a tradesman, leader, educator, manager, administrator, supervisor, and counselor, commands a position in the defense team which is closer than any other in the Navy's industrial activities, bridges the gap between the thoughts and the implementation - the need and its attainment. Superintendents bear these responsibilities, like our military associates, in solemn recognition of proffering their best efforts to nurture, apply, and develop those 7riceless skills essential to the American nation. The National Association of Superintendents regards with pride its long standing tradition of fostering such efforts
4: Our Purpose To improve the prestige and welfare of the membership, to increase our technical competence advancing our respective trade techniques in the art of building and repairing ships and the necessary support thereof. A superintendent is one who has attained great skill in his craft, whose teachings and precepts the mechanic accepted and followed; and who is the master of his/her own and allied crafts in a naval shipyard or other large naval industrial establishment. The Association shall promote harmony and good will between its members, and cultivate to the fullest extent the spirit of cooperation with the Commanding Officers, Heads of Departments and with each other, to the benefit of all. To associate ourselves as a Local Chapter of the National Association and work for the common good of the Federal Government, so the Defense Department and its employees may be mutually benefited. | Founding Fathers in 1912: Left to Right, upper row - George Trahey, Master Shipwright; Harry Bailey, Chief Draughtsman; Thomas Raines, Quartermaster Painter in Charge; Timothy Triggs, Warrant Carpenter; C.A.

6: The Apprentice Leadership Award The apprenticeship at PSNS/IMF has been the keystone building block for production leadership throughout the years. The Superintendents have taken this program as its own to develop -not only skilled mechanics- but great leaders. Since 1963, NAS has awarded a graduate apprentice(s) with the Leadership Award for their leadership in the classroom, on the deck plates, in their community and in their homes. | 1963 Donald Benberg 1964 Arthur Fenton 1965 Timothy Cline 1966 William Miller 1967 Fred Read 1968 Christopher Olson 1969 William Chynoweth 1970 Daniel Smith 1971 Rodger Noll 1972 Keith Blackler 1973 Gerald Haner 1974 Richard Huff 1975 Hansel Reed 1976 Michael Drouin 1977 John Van Ruth 1978 Harry Bennet 1979 David Fenton 1980 Amber Hay 1981 Linda Norem 1982 Steven Decoy 1983 D'on "Dee" White 1984 David Ross 1985 Nina Ingham 1986 Debby Whitten 1987 Albert Ungren | Shop 17 Shop 38 Shop 11 Shop 17 Shop 56 Shop 38 Shop 38 Shop 56 Shop 31 Shop 11 Shop 56 Shop 67 Shop 72 Shop 31 Shop 03 Shop 07 Shop 26 Shop 56 Shop 31 Shop 38 Shop 17 Shop 56 Shop 17 Shop 38 Shop 41 | Shop 51 Shop 51 Shop 17 Shop 67 Shop 56 Shop 56 Shop 11 Shop 72 Shop 64 Shop 31 Shop 99 Shop 07 Shop 11 Shop 71 Shop 11 Shop 26 Shop 71 Shop 26 Shop 17 Shop 17 Shop 38 Shop 17 | 1988 Richard Murguia 1989 Charisse Wise 1990 No selection 1991 Catherine Jett 1992 Nadine Foshaug 1992 Donald McKnight 1993 Gregory O'Guin 1994 No selection 1995 Evan Dewan 1996 No selection 1997 Mary Moreira 1998 Teresa Dahl 1999 Jeanne Brown 2000 Julie Stevens 2001 Bryan King 2002 Roberta Hamilton 2003 Carlene Ludwick 2004 Michelle L.

45: Eagle on Cannon The eagle in flight with a cannon in its talons is the symbol of the National Association of Superintendents. This, the Superintendent's emblem, represents a symbol of heraldry fully as significant and alive as it was when conceived and adopted many years ago. The eagle is the national emblem of the United States of America. It appears on the insignia of the military uniforms, banners, seals and displays of the military and civil functions of our government. The eagle is symbolic of the strength and greatness of our country. The eagle in flight on our lapel emblems demonstrates the dedication of the Superintendents to the U.S. Navy and the installation that we service and to our country. We, in wearing the eagle, show this dedication -this Support. The cannon may appear as old weaponry, it isn't -it portrays power. The power of our military force is significant to the defense of our country and to our freedoms. The powers of the ships at sea, the planes in the air, the submarines beneath the waters requires SKILL of our people. The ships, planes, submarines -the armament, the machinery, the devices of modern technology, in these we render our skills. We have given of our skill through the years from cannon to missile -to the power of our nation. We Superintendents wear with pride our emblem - the eagle poised on cannon. We render Service -give and lead SKILL -and by true dedication and loyalty, demonstrate SUPPORT.
