NAHFE members joined other federal colleagues, and friends at the GALA Hispanic Theatre on Thursday, April 24, 2014 for an evening of the arts and to share the benefits of being part of the NAHFE familia. This gathering was a new idea, and a creative way to allow NAHFE members to get together in a social way and continue to develop strong federal employee relationships.  Many of the participants expressed that it was a relaxing way of building collegial relationships by sharing culture through the arts. 

 

NAHFE is planning a second outing to the GALA Hispanic Theatre on Thursday, September 11 to see the comedy, “Cancun.” If you would be interested in joining the group, please email miryam@nahfe.org.  See attached flyer for more information. 

PILOT LEADERSHIP MENTORING PROGRAM 

 

In May 2014, NAHFE launched a pilot leadership mentoring program. Five members were selected to participate and matched with Senior Executive Service mentors. The pilot is scheduled to wrap-up in November 2014. NAHFE plans to report on the results of the pilot to its membership in the months following.

UPDATE FROM THE PRESIDENT

I have spoken with the new OPM Director, Katherine Archuleta regarding her interest in working with NAHFE on issues related to increasing the number of Hispanic executives in the Federal government.  OPM is enthusiastic to work with NAHFE to meet our mutual goals and I look forward to reporting back on our progress. On behalf of NAHFE I wish you and your family a happy Thanksgiving and holiday season.
