"Expanding Horizons: Where Tradition and Transformation Converge"
Date: Sept. 18-20, 2012 (0800 - 1630 all 3 days)
PPC Topeka is pleased to announce the dates for the annual 2012 Pay & Personnel Center Yeoman Symposium. This year's event, our 7th annual gathering of Yeoman, will be held 18 through 20 September 2012 in Topeka, KS. TThe 2011 workshop exceeded our expectations, with Yeoman attending from Coast Guard units all over the country. This event is critical for our responsibility in SPO Service Line Management and this year's event is shaping up to be the best one yet.
The theme for the YN symposium this year is "Expanding Horizons: Where Tradition and Transformation Converge". The U.S. Coast Guard known for a storied tradition and quick adaptability during times of transformation is again entering into a new phase of operation with respect to human capital management. As the effects of modernization take hold and the responsibilities change across the service, it will be the Yeoman we look to for answers. This years theme exposes the reality of the Yeoman world of work and how the goals People, Purpose, and Passion are required to successfully accomplish and sustain the U.S. Coast Guard missions.
We strongly encourage SPO staff members and unit admin personnel to attend this important symposium if at all possible. Put in your request for travel funds with your command now and come out to learn the latest in your world of work so that you can take the information and improved skills back to your unit!
We look forward to seeing you this September!
