Heritage month advisors sought

January 31, 2013

The Equal Opportunity Office acts as advisors on behalf of the commander for special/ethnic observances and events throughout the year. The planning committee for the 2013 Asian Pacific American Heritage Month (May) needs to be established. In order to properly plan and commemorate this observance, we are requesting that each organization canvas their unit for volunteers who would like to be chairman or chairwoman or to help with this event.

Committees are established to properly commemorate all special observances throughout the year that will greatly enhance the efforts to recognize the continuous achievements of all cultures and increase cultural awareness, mutual respect, and understanding. Thereby, enhancing cross-cultural awareness and promoting harmony among all military members, their families and the civilian workforce.

Weekly committee meetings will be held in the EO Office, Building 1294 South End. Date and time of the first meeting will be announced by the EO Office; follow-up meetings will be determined and announced by the committee.

All volunteers should contact Vivian Cumins (777-3516) email: vivian.cumins@hill.af.mil or Greg Boykin (777-4857) if interested in signing up for this committee.
