Keith Curtis, FCS Vice President, and Steve Morrison, FCS Board Representative, welcome
you to the FCS AFSA web page. As you may know, AFSA is a professional association as
well as a union, and we rely on our strong member base to advance our interest in both
areas. Our AFSA Governing Board term runs from July 2011 to July 2013. The current top
priorities are increasing funding for the entire U.S. Commercial Service, getting
locality pay and same-sex partner benefits adopted by CS Management, getting senior pay
approvals done in a timely manner, eliminating or changing the seven-year rule, and full
staffing of the OFSHR. The FCS faces many challenges and we need your help and
communication to help us advance your concerns. Unique to FCS, Keith is the only half-time
Vice President among the AFSA Vice Presidents. This situation sometimes makes us choose
our priorities carefully; nevertheless, we will strive to be the best voice for your
issues to management. Let me know your concerns!
You may contact Keith at Keith.Curtis@trade.gov
and Steve at Steve.Morrison@trade.gov if you
have questions or concerns.
