                                 The First 120 Days in Office:  Focused. Engaged. Responsive.

As I’ve traveled to agencies and chapters throughout the country over these past four months, speaking at various events and interacting with agency and government leaders, I have been so elated and encouraged
by their recognition and respect for Blacks In Government as the single civil rights organization whose sole objective is the preservation and enhancement of Black civil servants. I am also so very honored to 
represent such a prestigious membership and serve side by side with the dedicated members of the National Executive Committee, National Board of Directors, as well as such committed, organized and focused Regional Council and Chapter Presidents; and our BIG members.
