Written by FEDmanager on .

On Thursday, May 11, 2017, Bill Valdez, President of the Senior Executives Association (SEA), and Senator Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) will meet to discuss how to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the Federal civil service. 

In February, Valdez testified before the Senate Subcommittee on Regulatory Affairs and Federal Management on ideas for a more effective federal workforce.

SEA President Valdez will also announce SEA’s new Strategic Direction, which is designed to empower all Federal government career leaders with the tools and resources they require to be successful in the 21st Century. SEA proposes a combination of policy and program initiatives that focus on developing a “Leadership Profession” within the Federal government that starts at the earliest point in a civil servant’s career and continues through retirement.

This event is part of Public Service Recognition Week which takes place May 7 to May 13. Senator Heitkamp is a sponsor of the Senate’s Resolution on Public Service Recognition Week.
