  • Sue Thatch: A Champion for the Federal Workforce - December 16, 2021
  • FEDforum

    FEDforum asked organizations to identify someone we view as a champion for federal employees. We considered some Members of Congress, but settled upon our own Sue Thatch.

    The prompt for this round of the FEDforum is: Who is someone you view as a champion for federal employees, and why? This week, hear from the Federal Managers Association (FMA).

    Champion – (Noun) a person who fights or argues for a cause or on behalf of someone else.

    We spent a lot of time thinking about this one: Who is someone you view as a champion for federal employees, and why? There are many legislators on both sides of the aisle, in both chambers of Congress, we could have chosen. We thought about committee staff and agency officials, both career and political. We thought about winners of the Samuel J. Heyman Service to America Medal winners, past and current; all worthy choices. We decided on Federal Managers Association’s (FMA) own Sue Thatch, a federal manager at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, NC.
