Federal Managers Association Welcomes NPS Chapter
By Javier Chagoya
Officers and core members of the newly re-established Federal Managers Association (FMA) Monterey Chapter are photographed with national FMA President Patricia Niehaus, seated center, in the Herrmann Hall Tower Room, Jan. 28.
According to local chapter President Jim Hall, seated left, FMA membership can help NPS managers to improve management practices and further their educational goals through professional development symposia provided by the association.
"The FMA advocates excellence in federal public service through effective management and professionalism, and I hope that NPS managers will see the benefits of membership as a learning and networking tool," said Hall.
The re-establishment of the FMA's Monterey chapter was born from a recommendation made by one of several focus groups created in response to last year's Command Climate Survey. In addition to providing symposia and educational opportunities, FMA lobbies the federal government on issues of importance to federal workers, and represents nearly 200,000 managers and supervisors.
