Call for Self-Nominations

for the 2018-2019 ACOA Executive Committee

Note: Due to the adoption of a new ACOA operational year that ends on August 31, 2018, ACOA elections for the 2018-2019 Executive Committee will take place in July. Additionally, we have two new seats for the Executive Committee which includes Membership Co-chairs.

Deadline for Self-Nominations - COB Friday, June 29, 2018

Would you like to promote the mission of the PHS Commissioned Corps and assist with activities to increase morale and enhance camaraderie of Atlanta-area officers? Have you been trying to find ways to strengthen your CV for your next promotion? Look no further!

Leadership roles as a member of the 2018-19 Atlanta Branch of the Commissioned Officers Association (ACOA) Executive Committee counts under the "professional organizations" section of your category's benchmarks. Serving as a member of the ACOA Executive Committee is also an excellent way to meet other like-minded officers and advance the PHS Commissioned Corps by uniting and serving Atlanta-based Commissioned Officers and advocating their interests through leadership and communication.

ACOA Background

As PHS Commissioned Corps Officers, we must stay involved and informed. Now is a great time to become an active part of the ACOA Executive Committee. We need individuals who are motivated, energetic, and committed to supporting fellow Atlanta-area officers. With approximately 500 members, ACOA is the second largest branch in the Nation and has been active in professional development, community service, communication efforts, and special projects such as the annual promotion ceremony. More information on the activities of the branch, including our bylaws, is available on the ACOA website at www.atlantacoa.com. The ACOA Executive Committee typically meets from 0730-0900 on the first Wednesday of the month or on occasional Saturday mornings. The incoming ACOA President, LCDR Katrina Sloan, will determine the 2018-19 meeting schedule and location.

Available Positions

Officers are invited to submit a self-nomination for the following positions:

1. Vice President (1 position) (*See note below about term length.)
2. Treasurer (1 position)
3. Secretary (1 position)
4. Member-at-Large (10 positions)

Officers have the option to run for one specific executive position (Vice President/President-Elect, Treasurer, or Secretary) AND for Member-at-Large. If the officer wishes to exercise this option, he or she would appear on the ballot twice (once for the executive position and once for Member-at-Large). When voting on the ballot, officers may choose to vote for a candidate for both positions, only one of the two positions, or for neither position. The officer may only be elected to one of the two positions, with votes for the executive position being counted first. If the officer is elected to the executive position, his or her votes for the Member-At-Large position will be discarded and those positions will be filled by the remaining nominated officers. If the officer is not elected to the executive position for which he or she is listed as a nominee, then the votes for the Member-At-Large position will be tallied to determine if he or she received enough votes to be elected into that position.

Term

With the exception of Vice President, all positions are a one-year commitment, September 1, 2018 to August 31, 2019.

The Vice President position is a three-year commitment. The elected officer serves consecutive one-year terms in each of the following positions: Vice President (2018-2019), President (2019-2020), and Immediate Past President (2020-2021).

TSA Decoy Training Assistance Guide.pdf

Volunteers Needed: TSA-ATL Canine (K9) Training Program 

Atlanta’s Transportation Security Administration Unit (ATL-TSA) is in need of volunteer decoys to assist with their ATL Passenger Screening Canine (K9) training program. The TSA constantly evaluates screening procedures in order to stay ahead of evolving threats. One of the TSA’s many layers of security is the Passenger Screening Canine (K9). In order to ensure their K9s are always ready for real time threats, the TSA constantly trains and tests the K9s’ abilities. The TSA utilizes decoys to ensure they create scenarios that will most resemble an everyday traveling environment. Volunteer decoys will serve as mock traveling passengers.

The Decoy Training Program is conducted inside the Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport located at 6000 N Terminal Pkwy, Atlanta, GA 30320. Parking passes will be provided. The participants should park on the North (Blue) side of the Domestic Terminal. The attached guide provides details regarding where the participants should plan to meet the onsite POC as well as the POC’s respective contact information.

Participants will receive a letter of appreciation from the TSA for their service. ACOA members will receive a letter of appreciation from both ACOA and TSA.

In order to participate in this activity, officers will need to review the TSA Decoy Training Assistance Guide in its entirety, as well as sign and return the enclosed TSA Trainer Decoy Waiver. Please also pay close attention to the dress code requirements. In addition, please ensure that you receive supervisor approval if you desire to participate during duty hours.

Decoys will be needed for the following dates/times below (1-2 persons per designated time). Decoys are needed on an on-going basis, however, the TSA places the request for decoys in two week intervals. The TSA would like volunteers to dedicate at least 2 hours to the training.

If you are interested in participating, please provide your date and time of interest along with your name, rank, category, and employee ID to LT Tanesha G. Tutt (ttutt@cdc.gov) and CC Brandi Sangueza ( Brandi.Sangueza@tsa.dhs.gov ). They will then forward your name to the TSA contact who will reach out to you with further details
