Executive Summary Has Gone Digital!
Share |


Welcome to the first issue of our monthly e-newsletter! I hope you have had a jaunty July and awesome August. Summer is in full swing, and I have faith you are enjoying every minute of the season. However, it is not too early to start planning for returning to school and for autumn. There is still time for a great vacation and a quick getaway to the beach. Please, have fun, relax, and always be safe. 

This is FEIAA’s inaugural e-newsletter. Special thanks to the members of the FEIAA Communications Committee - Amy Johnson, Jonathan Herrmann, Maya Laws Barney and Trina M. Smith - for their time, talent, and expertise given to the launch of our first digital Executive Summary newsletter.  I really hope you appreciate their efforts and that you find the newsletter more user friendly. Furthermore, I would like to get pros/cons and opinions. Send me an e-mail and let me know.

Please provide me with your aspirations and ideas for the forum, this newsletter, and timely topics.

Again, please provide us with your comments or other ideas to office@feiaa.org or directly to me at peter.s.duklis@hud.gov

Leadership and Today's Civilian Workforce
Over the past several years I’ve seen more and more leaders unable to come to grips with today’s civilian workforce.
