NRM CAP Program Call for Nominations Suspense. 27 October
Please see attached memo announcing the opening of nominations for the FY 2018 Natural Resources Management (NRM) Career Assignment Program (CAP). This program provides an excellent opportunity for our future leaders to gain valuable experiences and insights into the NRM program at the national level and to become familiar with HQUSACE roles and responsibilities. Each MSC can forward two nominations. We haven't gotten as many nominations as we would like, so I'm asking you to really make an extra effort to recruit nominees at the project, district, and division levels.
Two CAP assignments (6-month terms) are offered. One is scheduled to run from early February through July 2018 and the other from early July through December 2018. The exact reporting date will be negotiated once selections for the assignments are made. Further explanation of the program and the requirements for submission of nominations is enclosed. Salaries for the CAP assignees will remain the responsibility of their home district or MSC. Travel and full per diem costs will be funded by CECW-CO-N.
Interested and qualified team members must submit a resume through their supervisor to their district office for consideration. District offices will forward their candidate(s) to their MSC. Each MSC NRM Chief will prepare and send a memorandum endorsing their top two candidates to Mr. Stephen B. Austin at HQUSACE, Operations Natural Resources Community of Practice (CECW-CO-N), no later than 27 October 2017. Nominations will not be accepted directly from individuals.
Please encourage your employees to consider this outstanding opportunity to experience the policy, budget, and decision-making through the organization. Previous CAP's have stated that this was the best experience of their careers and inspired them to consider new directions and building skills and abilities. This program helps to build leadership in the Corps.
Selections are expected to be made by the middle of November 2017.
The POC for this program is Mr. Stephen B. Austin
