Dear FEB Member Agencies,
On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Baltimore Federal Executive Board, I would like to thank all those who were instrumental in the success of the EEO Diversity and Inclusion Symposium, held on Wednesday, June 19, 2013. The EEO Diversity and Inclusion committee members (from a number of FEB agencies) led by the Chair, Leon Patterson, worked long hours and very hard to ensure the success of the program. Additionally, the Symposium was attended by nearly 30 agencies or organizations to include one of our largest FEB member agencies, the Social Security Administration (SSA).
Without the dedicated support of the SSA senior leadership the success of the Symposium would not have been possible. SSA went out of its way to provide the logistical support needed to include audio visual and closed captioning support and printing of the Symposium program. Printing was also provided by the VA Maryland Health Care System. This was an INTERAGENCY event and was typical of the types of cost-effective training and professional development opportunities offered to local FEB member agencies and local government and community partners by the national Federal Executive Board Network.
Thank You once more for your support and dedication to the success of events sponsored by the Baltimore Federal Executive Board!
Richard H. Howell, Executive Director
Baltimore Federal Executive Board
US Coast Guard Yard Under New Command
BALTIMORE, MARYLAND – Captain George Lesher of the United States Coast Guard recently assumed command of the U.S. Coast Guard Yard. He is the 41st Commanding Officer in the 114-year history of the shipyard, the only shipbuilding and major ship repair facility of the U.S. Coast Guard. The Captain was the Yard’s Industrial Manager from 2011 to 2013.
Captain Lesher took charge of the Coast Guard Yard from Captain Richard Murphy who served as the shipyard’s Commanding Officer from May 2010 to June 2013. Captain Murphy retired from the U.S. Coast Guard with 30 years active duty service.
Captain Lesher came to the Yard from the Coast Guard Cutter (CGC) DEPENDABLE (WMEC-626), where he served as Commanding Officer from 2009 to 2011. During this period, CGC DEPENDABLE conducted law enforcement operations from the Canadian border to South America, completing more boardings than any other major Coast Guard cutter.
Thanks again for all from the FHWA DelMar Office and the other agencies in the City Crescent Building who were able to go with Young Government Leaders (YGL) to volunteer at the Maryland Food Bank on April 20th! We got to meet a lot of other civic-minded federal employees, and like-minded citizens who also volunteered that day. Boxes were made and food was sorted over a four-hour period that was very productive and saved a lot of money for the charitable organization!
Feel free to take a look at the photos and short video clips to see what you may have missed:
