FMA Elects New National President

Renee Johnson will lead the Federal Managers Association (FMA) as their newly elected national president.

 

Johnson, a 26-year veteran of the federal workforce, will take over for Patricia Niehaus, who led the organization for 6 years as FMA’s first woman president. Johnson previously served as FMA’s director of Region 2 and as the chapter 21 president. In her role as chapter president, she helped jumpstart work that led to the Wounded Warriors’ Federal Leave Act in 2015.

“For many years federal employees have weathered near-constant attacks by many in Congress, coupled with pay freezes, minimal raises, furloughs and sequestration,” Johnson said in a release. “On top of the stress this places on individuals’ personal lives, it has also meant we have fewer and fewer employees doing evermore work. I will stand strong on behalf of federal managers and make sure the highest levels of government hear not only their concerns, but also their ideas for streamlining efforts and cutting costs where we can without hurting agencies’ missions.”

Johnson, who started out as a GS-1, is a Component Program Deputy Integrated Product Team Lead at the Fleet Readiness Center East in Cherry Point, N.C. She was also the recipient of the association’s Gil Guidry Award in 2012 in recognition of her leadership at the chapter.

FMA represents more than 200,000 federal executives, managers and supervisors across the government.
