BOYERS, Pa. - The U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) Director Dale Cabaniss visited OPM employees in Boyers, Pa., marking her first visit to meet OPM employees outside the Washington, D.C., area during her first four months as Director of OPM.

Director Cabaniss had prioritized meeting OPM’s Retirement Services staff and getting a firsthand look at their field operations.
