Subcommittee Team Functions

TEAM 1: Career Progression Resources Team (CPRT): The objective of this team is to serve in a resource capacity related to career progression by keeping abreast of new developments and policies relating to an officer’s progression in the Corps. CPRT develops and distributes content that may be helpful to an Officer’s career progression. The content may be in the format of written documents or webinars.

TEAM 2: Operations (OPs): The objective of this team is to serve in an operational capacity to provide information and guidance to all HSOs by the means of several conduits, including, but not limited to, submissions of website updates and document revisions, and also drafting PAC communications for our subcommittee including PAC Listserv announcements, letters, webinar announcements, and conference calls. We facilitate the annual combined Coaching on Demand/CV Review activity to pair Jr. Officers with Sr. Officers for guidance and mentoring and oversee the Max.gov HSPAC Federal Jobs page that provides immediate information for new career opportunities available to HSOs.

Team 3: Career Progression and Promotion Guidance (CP2G): The objective of this team is to provide a comprehensive HSPAC CP2G toolkit for our HSOs. The HSPAC CP2G Toolkit is made up of the various guidance and required documents necessary for promotion (including promotion specific webinars and support services). Additionally, the HSPAC CP2G Toolkit also includes various guidance documents to assist you HSOs with career progression. All CP2G Toolkit resources are updated at least annually with feedback from the previous’ year HSPAC Promotion Board members.

TEAM 4: Core Competencies: The objective of this team is to provide guidance on the Core Competencies Program, which is a skill-building, career development plan designed to help HSOs build and hone executive skills and knowledge to prepare to assume positions of higher levels of complexity, responsibility, and operational leadership, in a federal organization. The program offers a unique and targeted approach by taking the guesswork out of planning and provides a “how-to” guide captured in the toolkit that will allow officers to create, organize and implement a professional development plan designed to build professional skills.
