Maritime Logistics Community News : Summer 2010
4 NAVY SUPPLY NEWSLETTER SUMMER 2010 LEUT LUCY GAYLOR, RAN From the Editor's Desk Welcome to the Summer edition of the Navy Supply Newsletter with articles based on 'Supply Community -- Achieving every day'. Once again the interest in submitting an article to the Newsletter was high 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, 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 showcasing Supply's accomplishments; include CAPT Steve Sparks article on issues that the Joint Fuel and Lubrication Agency face, LEUT Sherrin Whiteman shares her experiences and logistic hurdles when the USN provided relief to Haiti and CAPT Ottaviano and LCDR Church have proposed a plan for a RAN Submarine Supply Officer. There are updates from our regular contributors of Deputy Director of Navy Category Management (Supply and Health) previously known as ADNCM(SPT) and the category sponsors, Deputy Training Authority -- Logistics, Chief Staff Officer (Support), the Navy People Career Management Agency (NPCMA) (the new organisation which is the amalgamation of DNOP and DSCM) 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 Posting Opportunities, List of Sailors Postings, Signals of Interest, Media Releases 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 'KIT 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. Publisher's Prizes for Summer 2010 edition Best Officer's Article: LEUT S.
