MEMORANDUM FOR: All NOAA Employees
FROM: Scott B. Gudes, Deputy Under Secretary
SUBJECT: 30th Anniversary Outreach Toolkit
|An important part of NOAAs 30th Anniversary celebration is the wide
variety of events taking place across the country. Dr. Baker and I encourage all employees
to participate in these activities, whether it be an open house at your facility or taking
part in a career day at a local school. To assist you in these endeavors, an Outreach
Toolkit was developed providing useful tools for educational programs. I would encourage
you to access this toolkit at http://www.30th.noaa.gov/toolkit.html
for outreach efforts which you can use in your community.
In addition, we want to recognize NOAA employees who volunteer their time and effort in
the community. Accordingly, we have established the NOAA Steward Program. NOAA Stewards
are employees who volunteer in their community to increase awareness about the agency.
Every employee interested in participating can register as a NOAA Steward with NOAA∆s
Office of Public and Constituent Affairs. Please contact Robert Hansen by email at
Robert.C.Hansen@noaa.gov, and he will forward registration information to you. The time
spent in outreach activities by NOAA Stewards will be recorded, and these efforts will be
recognized at the end of the year by NOAA leadership.
If you have any materials or activities that you would like to have included in the
toolkit, please let us know. Send your recommendations to Michelle.A.Crockett@noaa.gov, so
others can utilize this material. Remember to check the NOAA 30th Anniversary web page for
more employee profiles, birthday wishes, NOAA factoids, and a list of events where NOAA
will be promoting its 30th Anniversary celebration.
