Additional policies enforced at NAWS China Lake.
Political Activities and Posting of Signs
Department of Defense and Navy regulations prohibit posting of political signs and conducting political activities onboard federal property - regardless if that property is outside the security fence line.
Fundraising and Promotional Activities
All fundraising activity onboard Naval Air Weapons Station China Lake requires prior review and approval by the installation commanding officer.
NAWSINST 1710.1 applies to non-federal entities (NFEs) seeking recognition, approval and support for fundraising activities onboard NAWS China Lake. NFEs are self-sustaining, private organizations that may be incorporated, but are not necessarily so. Included within the definiton of NFEs are all local unit-oriented groups (Chief Petty Officer Selectees, Fallen Shipmates Memorials, First Class Petty Officers Association, etc.) and groups seeking to conduct unofficial fundraising for annual events such as the Navy, Marine Corps and Seabee Birthday Balls. Please refer to NAWSINST 1710.1 for the required process and guidance needed to request approval for fundraising activity.
