Each year since 1985, the U.S. Congress designates the first week of May as Public Service Recognition Week – time set aside to honor public employees and to educate the public about the many ways government workers make life better for all Americans. It provides an excellent opportunity to recognize State employees and express appreciation for one another in our commitment to serve the people of Colorado.
To celebrate the important contributions of our State employees, the Governor’s Office and the Department of Personnel & Administration (DPA) are hosting a special event to honor those employees who most exemplify the significant and invaluable contributions public servants make to the quality of life in our state.
Each department in the executive branch has been asked to select one employee to honor at this event. The honoree should be someone who demonstrates superior service to the people of Colorado. Designees must be submitted to DPA using this form by 5 p.m. Friday, April 12, 2019.
Each honoree and their Executive Director or designee will be invited to a special event in Denver during Recognition Week. VIPs will make brief remarks and honorees will be presented with a special certificate of appreciation.
If you have any questions, please contact Doug Platt, DPA Communication Manager, at 303-866-6095.
