Thank you for attending the 50th NTP.

Dear Workshop Participant:

Federally Employed Women (FEW) would like to thank all participants and guests who attended the 50th annual National Training Program (NTP) held in Philadelphia, PA, July 22-26, 2019.  In this very busy and hectic world, we appreciate you for taking the time and making it a priority to join us this past week.  The NTP was an enormous success because of your participation, and the sharing of your ideas and expertise.  Our theme “Commemorating Fifty Years of Training: Encourage, Empower, and Elevate” was so befitting for this year because we surely strived to leave you, encouraged, empowered and elevated.

We certainly hope that the training program has been all that you expected it to be, and that you have taken the opportunity to make new friends, renew old acquaintances and make contact with decision-makers and partners for your continued growth and success.

We would especially like to thank our honored guests and keynote speakers, Ms. Barbara M. Littles, Chief Executive Officer of Purpose by Design, Ms. Margaret Weichart, Acting Director for the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), Mr. J. Bruce Stewart, Chief Executive Officer of Small World Solutions and Mr. Miguel J. Avilés-Pérez from the Office of Diversity & Inclusion at the U.S. Coast Guard.  I would describe each speaker as electrifying and they all did a phenomenal job to help uplift you throughout the week with a positive enthusiastic spirit.   Photos are soon to come and will be shared on our website of NTP activities and key events.

A special thanks to our sponsors: Blue Cross Blue Shield, Long Term Care Partners, GEHA, FedChoice, AJW Financial Partners, Affordable Benefits Solutions, GEICO, and Prudential.  Please take the time to take the survey about your experience and how we can make it better next year.  Complete the survey at

Again, thank you for attending FEW’s 50th NTP and we look forward to seeing you “Soar to New Heights.”
