The 39th term Professional Development Council (PDC) is seeking applicants for the 40th term. The PDC is a self-governed group of Naval Surface Warfare Center Indian Head Division (NSWC IHDIV) employees that seek to increase their professional and personal capabilities. Membership allows employees to develop leadership skills by applying participative management techniques and creative problem solving to the terms corporate project, presentations, and formal training.
The PDC has scheduled a series of recruiting sessions in order to foster the continued learning about the PDC and to encourage increased involvement in the organization. The first of four events was held during the terms mid-term teambuilding event during the week of March 12-15 located at Picatinny Arsenal and was attended by the Systems Integration Department (G). "I'm excited about the interest we received at Picatinny," said Andrea Bloomer of E26. "Having a PDC member from Picatinny this term has worked out well, and the team is better off because of her involvement. We hope to continue that success next term with increased representation."
The second recruiting event was held at NSWC IHD on April 11 in Building 3137. This event was also a success with attendance by members of one of the newest groups at NSWC IHD, Process Technology Yorktown Detachment (T3).
"The recruitment interaction has focused on informing the audience of the PDC, its structure, roles and responsibilities, term duration and number of members to include the benefits such as, professional development, community involvement, and contributing to mission and continued success of NSWC IHD in delivering products and services," said Ryan Barrow of E26.
"It was great to see a good turnout at our first recruiting session at the Indian Head site," said Bloomer. "There are several new faces around station due to the recent BRAC, and the PDC can provide a great opportunity for people of technical and non-technical backgrounds to get involved."
The PDC will be holding two more recruiting sessions: April 26, 9 - 10 a.m., Building D-69, Breakout Room # 1 on the first level; and May 8, 9 - 10 a.m., Building 301, First floor conference room.
