The Seattle Federal Executive Board’s (SFEB) Associates Program is a longstanding, dynamic and unique leadership development program for high performing federal employees. This program has been in existence for at least 20 years, and the SFEB Associate network continues to be active. The SFEB Associates serve a two-year term where they partner collectively and individually, with fellow associates and participating senior executive service Advisors, from within the SFEB Leadership Council. Each Associate is mentored by a senior executive in addition to working with the senior executive assigned to their committees/working groups. Among other projects, including working with the SFEB Executive Director to carry out the Public Service Recognition and ad hoc events, the Associates develop, implement and execute a significant year end project focused on ambitious goals benefiting the federal workforce, the larger community, and the Associates leadership goals.
