In light of the continuing COVID-19 Pandemic and the many variants, the National Board of Directors has decided that the only responsible path forward is to hold another year of remote training. Being a part of the solution is not easy; yet, with the increasing number of variants and COVID-19 cases of death, FEW will continue to make the safety of our members, attendees, volunteers, and staff our top priority. And, due to the current status of the pandemic, many employees and agencies are re-instituting or maintaining limits on travel.
Thus, we have heard your concerns, and it is with great comfort that FEW announces the Virtually Leadership Summit III (VLS III) on July 18 – 22, 2022. This year’s theme is “Leadership Next Level: People, Purpose and Passion,” which exemplifies your ability to explore your passion and purpose and take leadership over your life and career to the next level. It will be hosted on a completely interactive training platform that will engage and demonstrate leadership at the next level.
The VLS III planning committee is at work developing a prominent training catalog. We are excited at this opportunity to reinvent our training program and bring you an extraordinary virtual training experience. Now more than ever, it is essential that you sharpen your knowledge and skills to meet the challenges we face in the ever-changing work environment. The VLS III is targeted at entry-level employees and senior decision-makers and policymakers for both civilian and military employees. We will meet you at the VLS III, where countless specialized courses on topics such as EEO, HR, IT and, Project Management and Leadership will be held for your learning experience. The benefit of training with FEW are enormous. All sessions align with the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) Executive Core Competencies (Leadership Change, Business Acumen, Results Driven, and Building Coalitions). We anticipate that the VLS III will eliminate some of the access barriers for attending an in-person event.
So, visit the VLS III website page often for current information and remember to register early. FEW will be thoughtful and prudent in keeping you abreast of all VLS III activities. Registration will open soon. After 53 years of offering a premier training program, we don’t want to miss this invigoration experience.
We look forward to seeing you “online” at the VLS III!
