Communications Specialist Sarah Zilonis : ; 202 - 266 - 9844. WEEKLY MESSAGE FROM ATO COO TERI L. BRISTOL Reaffirming Our Purpose for the New Year Hi everyone. During the holiday season, we ' ve got a lot on our plate: preparing for personal or family traditions, cooking, tree - assembling, lighting candles, shopping and wrapping are a few things that come to mind. Through it all, it ' s important to rem ember why we ' re doing what we ' re doing. In other words, what's the purpose of the holidays? For many of us, it ' s about seeing family, strengthening our faith, and having fun. It ' s about getting some rest and relaxation. Knowing our purpose helps us keep th ings in perspective. We can enjoy everything more, and stress a lot less. As an organization, it ' s just as important to continually reaffirm our purpose. It ' s to run the safest, most efficient aerospace system in the world. Everything we ' ve done, and will do in the new year, is dedicated toward this purpose. I ' m proud to be part of an organization that is dedicated to driving down safety risk, putting NextGen in place, and playing a central role in global aviation. I ' m proud to be part of an organization th at runs a safe, efficient air traffic system 24 hours a day, seven days a week. On that note, I want to thank those of you who will be working on the holidays. Because of you, the light of our airspace system continues to shine. Thanks everyone! I hope you have a safe and happy holiday. Teri L. Bristol ATO Chief Operating Officer MEMBERSHIP AND MARKETING DEPARTMENT WHAT'S NEW AT THE NATCA STORE? Check out the new look for the NATCA lanyard!
