(1)

The Federal Managers Association is the oldest and largest management organization in the Federal Government. Chapter 3 is one of the founding Chapters started in 1913. From our modest beginning as the Quartermen/Leadingmen Association our membership now covers all areas of the shipyard and the surrounding area. Our National Association has over 150 chapters in almost all Federal departments and agencies. The National Office is located in Washington, D.C. and has a full time staff which lobbies and keeps all FMA Chapters informed on Congressional issues.

Mission: •FMA continues to ensure that the Federal Budget is not balanced on the Federal employees back. •FMA actively lobbies congress and engages in consultative relationships with top executive branch officials across the government. •FMA continues to address cost effective government restructuring; competitive civil service pay and benefits; and maintaining the core values of the civil service. •FMA prompted legislation to closely scrutinize contractors. •FMA pursues legislation to bring common sense to government practices of contracting out services.

FMA STATEMENT ON SENATE PASSAGE
OF CONTINUING RESOLUTION
Alexandria, VA – Earlier tonight, September 30, the U.S. Senate approved a Continuing Resolution (CR) providing government funding through December 11, 2020. The final vote was 84 - 10. Federal Managers Association (FMA) National President Craig Carter made the following statement in response to its passage:
“As I said last week when the House passed the continuing resolution, a CR is preferable to a government shutdown. But preferable in this case does not amount to desirable, except when put against the catastrophe of a government shutdown. Regrettably, this is the exact situation we find ourselves in yet again.

“FMA acknowledges the House’s efforts to fully fund the government through Fiscal Year 2021. The House successfully passed ten of twelve spending bills before the August recess, and did significant work on all twelve. We are disappointed that we once again had to look to a CR mere hours before the end of the fiscal year.

“Continuing resolutions kneecap the ability of the government and the military to plan for the fiscal year ahead. Key positions cannot be filled with new hires. Critical projects cannot begin because there is no guarantee they will be funded by the eventual budget, and a lack of resources to lay the groundwork even if they are funded. Contractors and small businesses suffer unnecessarily. The total cost to taxpayers and the government as a result of the uncertainty from any CR is reliably in the billions of dollars.

“FMA implores Congress to come together and fully fund FY21. We urge the Senate to return to regular order in carrying out its constitutionally mandated duty of passing all twelve appropriations bills in a timely manner going forward. Passing these spending bills is critical to enabling federal workers and agencies to carry out their crucial missions on behalf of the American people. In the meantime, we urge President Trump to immediately sign this CR into law.”

FEDERAL MANAGERS ASSOCIATION ANNOUNCES ELECTION OF NATIONAL PRESIDENT AND SECRETARY

Alexandria, VA - The Federal Managers Association (FMA) is pleased to announce its newest elected officers. FMA National Vice President and Chapter 3 President Craig Carter was elected as the Association's National President and FMA Region 3 Director Pauline Coleman-Sutton was elected National Secretary.

A thirty-year veteran of the civil service with the Department of the Navy, Craig Carter brings with him a wealth of experience as both a supervisor and employee. Craig has held many leadership positions within the Association at the chapter, regional, and national levels prior to his election as National President.

At Chapter 3, Norfolk Naval Shipyard (NNSY), Portsmouth, Virginia, he has served as a Code Representative, Chapter Treasurer, and Chapter President. He served regionally as Region 2 Treasurer. At the national level, Craig has served as National Membership Coordinator and most recently as National Vice President.

Craig has many accomplishments over his years of service to FMA. In 2016 and 2017, his chapter received the Association's President's Award, which recognizes the FMA chapter that has displayed the greatest dedication to the Association's cause over the course of the year. Additionally, his membership recruitment for FMA is unparalleled, including winning the Super Recruiter award in 2015 and again for 2019. Overall, Chapter 3 recruited more than 300 new members in recent years. He has done a great job of improving Chapter 3's relationship with NNSY command, senior leadership, and public affairs, which has led to enormous growth for the chapter.

Craig is focused on continuing to build membership and reinvigorating FMA's chapters as two of his primary objectives as he takes on his new role as National President.

"As an organization, we are currently moving in the right direction and cannot afford to change the momentum we have built moving forward," said Craig. "As National President, I am dedicated to growing our association, continuing to spread our 'good government' message throughout the federal workforce, and working on a non-partisan basis to ensure federal managers and supervisors are well positioned to serve the interests of our nation. Thank you to all members for your support and trust in me to represent FMA on your behalf."

In his professional life, Craig serves as an Assistant Project Superintendent at Norfolk Naval Shipyard, in Portsmouth, Virginia, working in the Special Attention Section performing Naval Nuclear work.

Pauline Coleman-Sutton is a longtime leader of FMA Chapter 191, Railroad Retirement Board, Chicago, Illinois. Pauline retired from the federal workforce in 2013 with more than 37 years of service. In her private life, Pauline serves faithfully as an ordained Deacon at her local church.

Pauline recently completed her third term as FMA Region 3 Director and serves as Chair of FMA's Political Action Committee (PAC). As National Secretary, she will continue in her role as FMA-PAC Chair.

Always striving to lead by example, according to former President Renee Johnson, Pauline embodies mentorship. Renee awarded Pauline the 2018 Odell Green Memorial Award for being the outstanding member of the FMA Executive Board.

"I have a heart for FMA; I am blessed to continue to serve," said Pauline. "I intend to represent our outstanding organization to the best of my ability in this new role. It is an honor to be elected National Secretary."

The Federal Managers Association, established in 1913, is the oldest and
largest association representing the interests of executives, managers,
and supervisors serving in today's federal government.

Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard

In honor of the lives and legacies of Vincent J. Kapoi, Jr. & Roldan A. Agustin.

We are #NoKaOi. We are #shipyardstrong.

Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Mike Gilday

This has been a devastating week for our U.S. Navy family. Our hearts break for those who lost their lives in Pensacola and the wrenching pain it causes their loved ones. When tragedy hits, as it did today, and Wednesday in Pearl Harbor, it is felt by all. Those who grieve do not do so alone. We grieve together alongside you. We serve together as one team, as one Fleet, as part of one Joint Force. As shipmates - uniform and civilian, active and reserve - we must come together to be the strength and support for those who need us now. No one should feel alone. There are many resources available for us all - including counselors, chaplains and mental health professionals. We must look out for each other and take care of one another. That extra effort to extend a hand or lend an ear to those who need help, should never be underestimated. It will make a difference.

12/05/2019

On behalf of Chapter 3 we want to send prayers and support to our brothers and sisters in Pearl Harbor. This is a time to come together and stand as a united front. We should all be looking out for each other's well-being, especially during the holidays. One conversation or act of kindness can go a long way.
