Program coordinator, members sought

The Equal Opportunity Office is looking for a program coordinator and committee members for the 2008 Days of Remembrance for Victims of the Holocaust and Asian Pacific American Heritage Month observances.

The Little Rock AFB Special Observance Program is a wing program carried out by special observance committees. These committees come together for a limited time to plan, organize, and execute events and activities for DoD recognized special observances.

The LRAFB special observance committees are not private organizations and any person assigned to Little Rock AFB (i.e. active duty, retiree, family member, DoD civilian) has an opportunity to be appointed Program Coordinator and participate as a member of any special observance committee.

The Days of Remembrance meeting will be held at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday in the EO classroom (building 842, behind the Education building).

The Asian Pacific American Heritage meeting will be held at noon Tuesday in the EO classroom (building 842, behind the education building).
