I am pleased to announce that the Office of Combined Federal Campaign Operations is accepting nominations for the annual CFC Heroes and Innovators awards. These awards, presented during a ceremony at the White House, honor Federal employees and campaigns for their outstanding efforts on behalf of the CFC.
We hope you will help us pay tribute to the "unsung heroes" of the 2003 Combined Federal Campaign by sending us your nominations by Wednesday, April 7, 2004. 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 Dale Rieck, member, LFCC Chairperson of the Albany Area CFC in Georgia.
The committee will review the nominations and select individuals from each of the following four Federal communities: Civilian, Postal, Military (Uniform), and Military (Civilian). It will also review nominations for campaigns that implemented an innovative strategy that led to increased participation and/or contributions.
These awards are a wonderful way to recognize the accomplishments of 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 and Innovators by submitting their relevant information by April 7, 2004. This information may be faxed to the attention of: CFC Awards Committee at 202/606-5056. Please use the attached guidelines.
The recipients of these awards will be announced in April. They will be invited to attend an awards ceremony at the White House in late May. Details on the date and time of the ceremony will be announced shortly.
Thank you for your participation in this program.
