Sammies Finalists 2014The awards are new to me!

The Partnership for Public Service annually honors outstanding federal employees who have made a significant difference in the lives of Americans, presenting awards that have come to be known as the "Oscars of government service."

Renamed the Samuel J. Heyman Service to America Medals in honor of the Partnership's late founder, the awards shine the spotlight on the inspiring and high impact accomplishments of talented and dedicated federal employees. The honorees' achievements are a testament to the important and effective work of our government and the value of a strong federal career workforce.

One time GIO of California and most recently GIO of the FCC, Michael Byrne now serves as Home Mortgage Disclosure Act Operations Lead at Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. He is one of five nominees for the Citizen Services Medal. (All finalists are at right It recognizes a federal employee for a significant contribution to the nation in activities related to citizen services (including economic development, education, health care, housing, labor and transportation). He was interviewed on Federal News Radio yesterday. The station (in D.C. and online) is speaking with all the nominees.

Byrne has always been a good friend of Directions and the geospatial community. He sets the bar high regarding what a geographer can do in the public sector. Congrats on the nomination and best of luck with the new job!
