- FMA PRESIDENT THANKS FEDS AND ALL PUBLIC SERVANTS - April 30, 2021
- Urges all Americans to show their appreciation during Public Service Recognition WeekAlexandria, VA - As public servants are recognized for their contributions to our nation during Public Service Recognition Week (PSRW), Federal Managers Association (FMA) President Craig Carter praised the work of FMA members, offering encouragement and gratitude to federal employees, and all public servants. PSRW runs May 2-8, 2021, with celebrations planned across the country.Celebrated annually during the first week of May since 1985, Public Service Recognition Week is time set aside to honor the men and women who serve our nation as federal, state, county and local government employees. Throughout the country, elected officials, agency leaders, communities and public service organizations participate in PSRW by issuing proclamations, hosting award ceremonies and special tribute events, and delivering messages about the value of public service. We encourage government leaders and public servants from all backgrounds to participate by showing appreciation to their employees and by sharing stories of excellence in public service that highlight the important work their employees and colleagues are doing on behalf of the American people every day."I want to take a moment to thank my Federal Manager Association colleagues and all public servants at the federal, state and local levels. Much of what we accomplish is taken for granted, but we all know public servants strive to provide exceptional service to all Americans every day. This was made abundantly evident by how public servants have shined throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, carrying on their missions, maintaining a high level of service to fellow citizens despite extraordinary circumstances and personal dangers," stated National President Craig Carter. "It is fitting that this year’s theme is ‘GovPossible.’ Feds have demonstrated, even in the midst of a global pandemic, their utmost dedication, commitment, energy and purpose on behalf of all Americans, and shown what is possible thanks to their service."FMA encourages you to download the #GovPossible toolkit for ideas about how to participate, templates to use, and examples for inspiration.
