Caring for People Forum – Let your voice be heard

Have you and a co-worker, peer or colleague talked about an issue or problem that affects the Edwards Community and all you wanted to do was get it fixed or talk to the senior leadership about it?

Then you might be just the person to attend the Caring for People Forum, a means for leaders to receive community feedback for review, action and resolution in a timely manner.

This forum will allow Airmen, family members, retirees, and DOD civilians to voice their concerns and forward suggestions on Air Force policy and/or support service to senior leaders.

The forum will take place April 12 at Chapel 2 from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

All participants MUST register no later than April 1 and have their supervisor’s approval. We need ALL ranks, non-supervisory civilians as well as civilian supervisors.

Participants will be able to select their top three choices from eight support groups: Family Support, School Support, Deployment Support, Housing Support, Health and Wellness, Single Airmen Support and Special Needs Family.

To register please contact Katelin Sprague at (661) 277-4988 (Katelin.sprague@edwards.af.mil) or Kim Shirley at (661) 277-7272 (kimberly.shirley@edwards.af.mil).

Note for DOD Civilians: Civilians who attend are not to be charged leave. If they are otherwise in a duty status, they will remain so during this event. Employees must obtain supervisory approval to attend; approval will be based on mission needs.
