Chief Tom Tidwell Welcome to the inaugural edition of “Inside the Forest Service,” an employee-focused publication designed to highlight the outstanding work taking place throughout the agency. This publication replaces “The Chief’s Desk” or as it was commonly known, “People, Places and Things,” with a product that increases accessibility to feature stories stressing agency-wide interests and priorities.

“Inside the Forest Service” is a modernized approach to share information with employees and retirees. The publication is online and reachable with any device that connects to the internet. “Inside the Forest Service” will be updated regularly to provide timely stories, photographs and videos depicting the work we do to improve lives.

One of the more popular sections of “People, Places and Things” has been On the Move. For now, that portion will not be included in “Inside the Forest Service.” I know how important that section is to many, so don’t worry, it is not going away. We will still announce personnel moves in a weekly email most Friday afternoons.

I am pleased to bring you this new product. I think you will enjoy it. In addition, I am interested in hearing what you think of it. We welcome any feedback you may have, and will use it to fine-tune our efforts so that we can continually reach more people with increasingly more relevant and useful information.
