Celebrated the first week of May since 1985 (beginning on the first Sunday of the month), Public Service Recognition Week (PSRW) is organized annually by the Public Employees Roundtable (PER) and its member organizations to honor the men and women who serve our nation as federal, state, county and local government employees.

Throughout the country, mayors, governors, agency leaders, communities and public service organizations participate in PSRW by issuing proclamations; hosting award ceremonies and special tribute events; and delivering messages about the value of public service. We encourage government leaders and public servants from all backgrounds to participate by showing appreciation to their employees and colleagues and by sharing stories of excellence in public service.

In recognition for all that our local Federal employees do for our local communities, the Oregon Federal Executive Board is delighted to provide a variety of events at both the Edith Green Wendell-Wyatt Federal Building and the 911 Federal Building. Events include six FREE training seminars for the Federal Workforce during the 2018 Public Service Recognition Week, along with a Wellness Jamboree event brought to you by your benefit providers.  Thank you for your service to America and to our local communities.

Advanced Registration is REQUIRED for all seminars. Four Seminars include workbooks to print and bring with you on the day of the seminar.
