Congressmen LoBiondo and Weldon to Kick Off First Session

EGG HARBOR TWP., N.J. — The Federal Aviation Administration's William J. Hughes Technical Center will hold its 28th Annual Awards Ceremony for Achievement and Excellence, at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, September 22, in the auditorium.

"We Believe in You" is the theme of this year's program, which honors top employees in 12 categories, including: leadership, technical program, innovator, customer service, technical team achievement, business excellence and more. The annual awards program is unique in that nominees and winners are nominated by peers and supervisors, and selected by a panel of their peers.

A highlight of this year's ceremony will be the presentation of the "Friend of the Technical Center" Award to U.S. Representative Frank A. LoBiondo (R-NJ), a strong supporter of the Center for many years.
