Fellow NOAA Corps officers,
It's great to have the CPC website live again as well as the return of the Cyberflash. It was incredible to see how NOAA Corps officers contributed during the recent five week partial government shutdown! The NOAA Corps Leadership Development Framework (LDF) states that "personal and organizational values are two critical factors that greatly influence leadership. To align these two sets of values, the NOAA Corps developed an official set of Core Values that forms the basis for Corps officers to build trust and confidence in both the organization and each other." One of those Core Values is Commitment and our performance during the shutdown demonstrated what that looks like. As defined in the LDF, commitment includes "serving our nation effectively and efficiently with knowledge, skill, loyalty, and perseverance." It also includes committing and dedicating ourselves "to the nation and NOAA". We had officers performing tasks necessary to keep OMAO excepted missions operating, helping out in other programs within their line office to keep excepted missions on track, as well as officers embedded in NOAA staff offices supporting administrative work to keep NOAA operating as efficiently as possible during the funding lapse. Thanks to all for your loyalty to NOAA and the Nation as well as your perseverance. It did not go unnoticed by the line offices or NOAA senior leadership and definitely built trust and confidence in the NOAA Corps.
An exciting event happened here at CPC during the shutdown. CDR Jeffrey Taylor, your new Chief, Officer Career Management Division, joined the CPC team. CDR Taylor has 18 years of service in the NOAA Corps and four years of previous Air Force enlisted service. He has over nine years of sea duty with Command tours aboard NOAA Ship Gordon Gunter and most recently NOAA Ship Henry B. Bigelow. CDR Taylor embraces the idea of servant leadership and is looking forward to assisting officers with career issues. He will make a great addition to CPC with his philosophy of "how can we make this possible". Welcome aboard CDR Taylor!
