CDR Steve Hall '75, USN (Ret.)

Western Region Trustee

My goal as trustee: To be a hands-on advocate for the members within the Western Region; to provide our chapter and class all-volunteer leaders with the best tools to ensure vibrant, active, and engaged membership; to encourage the grooming of the next generation of association leadership.

My background: While at USNA, I was a systems engineering major, rowed on the Navy Lightweight Crew team, and joined the Alumni Association as a life member.   After graduating with the great class of 1975, I entered the nuclear power pipeline and served on six submarines, including command of GREENLING (SSN 614) and DRUM (SSN 677).  My two “shore tours” were on the Carrier Group THREE staff and as XO ashore.

After 20 years active duty service, I returned to my native San Francisco where I became a general contractor and was soon immersed into neighborhood historic preservation and planning efforts.  I quickly assumed leadership roles within all-volunteer public benefit neighborhood organizations and have developed essential IT skills needed to support organizational missions.

My commitment and service to the Naval Academy and Alumni Association is a priority and continues in a variety of ways, including:
- Serving as a member of the San Francisco Bay Area Chapter leadership team. I am proud of the recent accomplishments of our chapter and keenly aware of the many challenges facing the geographically large chapters within the Western Region.

- Serving on the Board of Trustees Membership & Alumni Service Committee. I have already developed working relationships with many current trustees and the Alumni Association staff.

I also serve as a BGO in San Francisco and have been a member of the USNA Foundation President’s Circle since 2005.

I’m excited about the opportunity to serve as your Western Region Trustee.  I have the willingness, means, and skills to do my best to ensure the association supports all alumni the best we can. Please contact me with any questions or comments at steve.hall@1975.usna.com.
