    Show Your Appreciation, May 511, 2013 


    For more than 35 years, Public Service Recognition Week has been honoring men and women who work in public service on the federal, state, county, and local government levels. The first week of May has been officially designated by Congress as a time to celebrate and show appreciation for our nation’s talented and dedicated public servants.

    Organized by the Public Employees Roundtable, a non-partisan coalition of government organizations that represent civil servants and retirees from all levels, Public Service Recognition Week supports the Roundtable’s mission to promote government employment and careers, educate Americans about the value of public service, and recognize excellence within the field. 

    Throughout the week, America’s mayors, governors, agency leaders, and communities will participate in the celebration with proclamations, awards, special events, and more.

    Why I Serve 

    The theme for Public Service Recognition Week 2013 is “Why I Serve.” Each day, leaders and elected officials will share the reasons they chose to serve in government and their proudest career accomplishments.
