It is with a mix of excitement and sorrow that I inform you that this is my last Cyberflash as Director, CPC. RADM Score has approved my assignment to Senior Advisor to the Director, OMAO and NOAA Corps, effective September 5, 2017. I truly value our NOAA ohana; our shared commitment to the work we do and the bonds we develop through the rigors of shared experiences. Being able to serve as your Director, CPC has been a privilege which I will always cherish because I was given the opportunity to lead the center that serves a small but crucial part of NOAA's most valuable resource – you.
With change comes opportunity and while I will miss being at the helm of CPC serving the NOAA Corps with the dedicated staff at CPC, I look forward to continuing to move our organization forward. I look forward to maintaining and pursuing higher levels of organizational excellence for NOAA and the Nation. In executing that commitment, I am grateful to RADM (select) Silah for the opportunity to serve as his Senior Advisor.
The mantle of leadership is demanding. Those of us who have had the privilege of commanding Centers, ships, planes, field parties, and stations know the rigors – there is a definite emotional and physical toll – but we all know the pure joy and intense satisfaction of when we succeed; and we succeed often thanks to you. Hurricane Harvey operations are just one of many glowing examples of how we provide value to our Nation and care for our fellow citizens. For me, the reason I continue to serve is based on this example and so many others. I serve because I love. I love our shipmates. I love our mission. I love our Country.
Captain Anne Lynch will report on September 15, 2017 as Director, CPC. Have a safe and enjoyable Labor Day weekend and if you're underway or in the air this Labor Day, fly and sail safe.
