One component of the New Hampshire Federal Executive Association's (NHFEA) mission is its programs. A key program is our Awards.  Information about the 2014 Awards program has gone out to agency leaders and NHFEA Board representatives.  Employees may nominate employees; managers may nominate subordinates; executives may nominate subordinate managers.  Download the Awards information at the bottom of this page to nominate someone today.  Contact Kathi Hatch, President, for more information about the annual awards program,  if you have not received information through your agency.

 

Each year, NHFEA recognizes distinguished government service in the following categories:

 

Community Service - This award is presented to an individual who has contributed to the improvement in the quality of life for a group or groups of people in a community.  Examples are uncompensated volunteer work or heroic or notable generous acts.  Nominations should emphasize how the act or service improved the quality of life for the people and, if possible, for the community in general.

 

  • 2013 Winner:  Richard Cecchetti, Portsmouth Naval Shipyard

 

EEO/Diversity/Inclusion - This award is presented to an individual or group for significant contributions in support of the Equal Employment Opportunity/Diversity/Inclusion programs, including Federal Women's Program, minority and disabled hiring and advancement, etc.  Nominees are not restricted to employees with EEO/Special Emphasis Program Manager (SEPM) job responsibilities, but rather to all who further these objectives, regardless of their primary duties.

In addition to sponsoring an annual awards program, the NHFEA offers annual scholarships to federal employees and/or their spouse and dependent children.  Visit the Scholarships page for information about the 2013 winners!

 

We raise funds for our Scholarships through a variety of outings. Again this year, we will attend the New Hampshire Fisher Cats game against the Portland Sea Dogs in July 2014, at the Manchester Stadium. Contact Jessica O'Meara for information about tickets.

 

The NHFEA is also a proud supporter of the Combined Federal Campaign, agency blood drives, and health fairs.  Thank you, everyone, who contributed to the 2013 campaign and helped raise needed funds for agencies locally,  nationally, and world-wide.  They literally couldn't do what they do without you!
