Maritime Logistics Community News : November 2009
4 NAVY SUPPLY NEWSLETTER SPRING 2009 LEUT AMANDA FRAPE, RAN From the Editor’s Desk Welcome to the Spring edition of the Navy Supply Newsletter with articles based on ‘an international approach to support and logistics’. I received an overwhelming number of articles for this edition and I was particularly impressed by the depth and diversity of the articles. I would like to thank all the authors who have submitted articles to this edition and would like to encourage others to contribute in the future, particularly junior sailors. The newsletter is an opportunity for our community to showcase their professional and personal achievements, challenges and experiences as well as stimulate debate on more controversial topics. Your contribution is essential to make this newsletter an interesting and successful publication. There are also publisher prizes for the best article by an Officer, Senior Sailor and Junior Sailor as well as a ‘best group’ article. In this edition, articles based on the theme include LCDR Potter’s perspective on the USN’s key supply initiatives; LEUT Lucking explains how Joint Logistics Unit – North Queensland is supporting our ships and Ian Menzies outlines PDL Toll’s approach to conducting business across the globe. There are updates from our regular contributors of Assistant Director of Navy Category Management (Supply) (previously known as ADNPR(SU)) and the category sponsors, Deputy Training Authority – Logistics, Chief Staff Officer (Support), Directorate of Sailor Career Management, Directorate of Naval Officer Postings and our Reserve Column. Do you foresee yourself taking some time off in the future? It might be for maternity leave, long service leave or conducting civilian schooling. If so, and you would like to stay in touch with what is happening in the Navy and Supply community, we offer a weekly email subscription called ‘Keep in Touch’ or KIT emails. Each week, I send out KIT emails with any relevant documents and notices such as List of Officers Postings/List of Sailors Postings and DefGrams to keep members up to date. This is also useful for members who may be posted to non-Navy units. If you would like to be added to this mailing list, please visit the Head of Supply Community intranet site http://intranet.defence.gov.au/navyweb/sites/HSuC/ under ‘ Supply Community Network’ to subscribe/unsubscribe. Alternatively, if you do not have access to the DRN, please send your email address to NavySupply.Newsletter@defence.gov.au with the subject ‘KIT Subscribe’ or ‘ KI T Unsubscribe’. You can unsubscribe at any time. We are always interested in hearing about people in our community being recognised and rewarded for their efforts, and also about other events and activities that our people are involved in. If you have something of interest you would like to share, provide a comment on the articles or give any suggestions for improvement, then I encourage you to send in an article, preferably with a high resolution (at least 300 DPI) detached picture to: NavySupply.Newsletter@defence.gov.au. We also want to promote our community’s achievements, therefore, if someone within your department receives an award or honour, please send an email to the editor with a photo, if applicable. Thank you for all your support during my tenure as Staff Officer to Head of Supply Community and Editor of this Newsletter.
