Registration form: registration_final.pdf
It is not too early to begin making plans and mark your calendars to attend the 2019 National Convention.
June 22-27, 2019
Astor Crowne Plaza
New Orleans, Louisiana
The convention committee is putting together an event that will be great. There will be loads of interesting speakers and events that will definitely make it worth your time to attend.
Preliminary discussion is being done to determine if there would be an interest in organizing wellness sessions for members and guests in attendance. This would be in the format of fitness sessions that could include yoga, pilates, kickboxing, etc. If we have members interested in something like this, we would need to know a few things:
~ If you are interested, what is type of wellness would you most like to have offered?
~ Would you like the offering to be before the meetings start, i.e. at 6:00 a.m. - 6:45 a.m., or in the later afternoon, i.e. 30 minutes after the meetings end?
~ Do you have the skills to and willingness to lead one of the classes?
~ In lieu of an exercise type event, is there some other type of wellness session you would like, such as a nutrition specialist or registered dietitian?
Please respond to me, the NASE President, Beth Perkins.
We are encouraging all members that are able to attend the Zone C/D Meeting as well as National Convention. You can find more information on our Events page.
We are sorry to announce that the Zone A and Zone B meetings for 2019 has been cancelled due to "furlough fallout."
Please join us at Zone C&D and/or the National Convention in New Orleans. Check out our Events page for more information.
NASE MEMBERS AND FELLOW EMPLOYEES,
We are back to work and looking at receiving pay by January 31, 2019. This is the information I received when we returned to work this morning.
I had contact with several employees during the furlough, who were needing help financially. Please let NASE know if there is anything we can do to help.
I want all of you to know that my heart goes out to each and every one of your families and you . We have great jobs with USDA, FSA. Times like these are when you need NASE the most to network and support each other.
We, as federal employees and members of NASE, respect the fact that this furlough has been long enough. The unknown is the very worst of all.
Go back to work with the value of knowing we are the best at what we do. You can’t find better employees anywhere on the planet other than FSA!
HAVE AN AWESOME WEEK.
