DoD Civilian Pre-Retirement Training

Fellow Civilians of Sector Guam,

There will be two one hour training sessions offered by DoD via VTC at B3190 Conference Room on the Navy Base for Sector Guam Civilian Personnel.  The training is on 1 Aug 2014 and first session kicks off at 0830 Chamorro Standard Time (Guam) and the second session kicks off at 0930.  See below for session details.

Session I (08:30):

Jane Burigsay from Social Security has agreed to provide a brief
about your Social Security benefits starting at 12:30 HST on the 31st.  This
brief will be held in the in the Auditorium and is also open to all field
offices via VTC.

Anticipate this brief to go about an hour and then we will roll
right into the Pre-retirement Training at 13:30.

Ms. Ann Vanderslice will be presenting Pre-retirement Training in
the DISA Pacific Auditorium on 31 July at 1330 HST.  All DoD Civilian

invited to attend.

A lot of work has gone on behind the scenes to make this opportunity available, so I hope many of you will take advantage of it.  This will also pave the way for future training over VTC if this goes well.  This has been a collaborative effort between the Federal Executive Board, DISA, US Navy, and Coast Guard to bring this training to all of you.

Respectfully,
