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
