Goals for National CGEA:

My goals for the National CGEA is to continue to grow our membership. By growing our membership we continue to grow relationships within our service and our communities. I plan to continue to push networking with each other and exchanging ideas and successes within each branch. I want to encourage our branches to get involved within our communities by exchanging community service ideas and volunteer events other branches have hosted. By spreading the word through our social media and email announcements, we can find ways to support our members, our branch, and our communities strengthening our relationships within our Coast Guard and local communities.

 

Why do you feel you are a good candidate for the applied position?

I feel I would be a good candidate for this position because I have been an active member and participant of the CGEA for over 5 years. I started off as a CGEA member of the Golden Gate Branch in Alameda, CA and before I knew it, I was the CGEA President of the Golden Gate Branch. After attending two National CPOA/CGEA Conventions, I decided I wanted to put in for National Secretary because I wanted to make a difference that would affect all of the CGEA not just my local branch. I am ready to continue to devote my time towards the positive work we have done and continue with the plans and ideas we have started. Being the National Secretary has helped me to adjust to the by-laws and build relationships with junior and senior members of the CGEA and CPOA. Aside from my experience as a National Officer, I have an array of administrative and organizational skills to bring to the table. As the National Vice President, I will be able to continue with my passion for the CGEA and put hard work and effort into the growing success of the CGEA.
