It's amazing to me that there are public servants like myself who don't know about Public Service Recognition Week and/or don't plan to celebrate this week.
The Partnership for Public Service and the Public Employee's Roundtable sponsor this annual celebration of service.
It would be great to have a GovLoop team for the 5K Run/Walk.
The Townhall Meeting will be webcast this year for those outside the DC area.
