LOS ANGELES — In the Los Angeles District "Building Strong and Taking Care of People!" is the order of the day. A mandate in full support of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Campaign Plan Goal 4 which is to recruit and retain strong teams. On Dec. 13, District Commander Col. Mark Toy unveiled a centerpiece for that initiative.
"We are celebrating those people that have made the leap to professional certifications, because they're proud of what they do," said Toy.
Two display boards were unveiled in the 12th floor conference room here. One for professional registrations and certifications and one for individual and organizational awards and recognition.
The Campaign Plan is a living document and Toy mentioned that Lt. Gen. Thomas Bostick, USACE Commanding General, in speaking to his Division and District commanders, said that more refinements to the plan were coming; especially in the realm of developing career paths for the civilian workforce as Goal 4 states, "build and cultivate a competent, disciplined, and resilient team equipped to deliver high quality solutions."
