The first week of May is when we celebrate public employees for their great work and service to the public. 

While there will be no in-person, multi-agency event in Olympia this year, there will be in-person events in Spokane and the Tri-Cities. OFM is also offering several online presentations on state employee benefits and business resource groups, and it will hold these events in partnership with the Seattle Mariners and Tacoma Rainiers.
