FOR: MEMORANDUM FOR LOCAL FEDERAL COORDINATING COMMITTEES (LFCCs) AND PRINCIPAL COMBINED FUND ORGANIZATIONS (PCFOs)
FROM: MARA T. PATERMASTER
DIRECTOR, OFFICE OF CFC OPERATIONS
SUBJECT: 2002 CFC HEROES

I am pleased to announce that the Office of Combined Federal Campaign Operations is soliciting nominations for the fourth annual CFC Heroes awards. As you may know, OPM Director, Kay Coles James presented awards to four Federal employees selected for their outstanding CFC efforts at the White House last year.

We hope you will help us pay tribute to the "unsung heroes" of the 2002 Combined Federal Campaign by sending us your nominations by February 28, 2003. Nominations will be reviewed and selected by a committee composed of LFCC members, local campaign staff, and prior year heroes. This committee will be chaired by Vince Micone, member, National Capital Area LFCC.

The committee will review the nominations and select one individual from each of the following four Federal communities: Civilian, Postal, Military (Uniform), and Military (Civilian).

We hope you agree that the CFC Heroes program is a wonderful way to highlight the CFC and the individuals who make it happen. We encourage you to replicate this program locally as well. Please help us identify CFC Heroes by submitting no more than two names and their relevant information by February 28, 2002. This information may be faxed to the attention of: CFC Heroes Committee at 202/606-5056. Please use the attached guidelines.

Thank you for your participation in this program.
