Chairman’s Message

Fiscal Year (FY) 2007 can best be described as a time of continued growth and success for the Chief Human Capital Officers (CHCO) Council, as we continued to build on the structural and organizational changes made in the previous year. For example, in FY 2007, the CHCO Council’s six subcommittees accomplished a number of activities that helped raise the profile of the Council. Select accomplishments of the subcommittees from last fiscal year are listed in Appendix 1 of this strategic document.

In addition, several subcommittees planned and organized CHCO Council Training Academy sessions, which proved to be an effective way to highlight and showcase agency human capital practices. In fact, FY 2007 was a banner year for the academy, as over 300 staff members from CHCO Council agencies attended the six sessions.

The CHCOs also had the opportunity to hear from several outside speakers at our full-Council meetings during FY 2007. The guest speakers represented a variety of groups, including, the Interagency Security Committee within the Department of Homeland Security, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Centers for Disease Control, the office of Federal Occupational Health, Federal Employee organizations, the Council for Excellence in Government, the Gallup Organization, and Congressional staff.

The ability to accomplish these activities successfully is attributed to the partnership between the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) and the members of the CHCO Council. Continuing the practice established in FY 2007, which provided the framework for success, the enclosed FY 2008 CHCO Council subcommittee goals were developed through collaboration between OPM, the CHCOs, and their Deputies and staff.

The goals outlined in this plan solidify the Council’s commitment to identifying, addressing, and showcasing key human capital challenges and practices.

I commend each of the subcommittee chairs for their leadership and dedication to the CHCO Council and the Federal human capital community at large. Their level of engagement is a key indicator that the CHCO Council continues to evolve and expand its sphere of influence.
