During the 74th annual National Convention and Management Training Seminar, members of the Federal Managers Association (FMA) discussed the necessity of front-line managers when it comes to making making day-to-day decisions. "We are the boots on the ground," a FMA member said during a question and answer session with Office of Personnel Management (OPM) Director John Berrt. "The executives don't know the day-to-day.
