Since I will be retiring this coming Spring, I was hoping you could include my pitch in an upcoming JOTW.

I am an accomplished public relations professional who will be retiring this coming spring after a successful 24-years Naval career. During my commissioned service, I have gained a wealth of diverse and challenging experience in developing and implementing high-profile, integrated communication strategies to promote company activities and policies to a variety of internal and external audiences. I am trusted, well-regarded public affairs advisor and have successfully led and coordinated programs and activities relating to crisis communications, media relations, community relations; and internal communications. Strong ability to develop/write strategic messages and present diverse ideas in a logical and concise manner. Exceptional aptitude for detail and accuracy with a highly disciplined work ethic. Resourceful leader with a demonstrated ability to organize time and schedules efficiently, with excellent professional demeanor. Superior written, verbal, and interpersonal skills. I maintain a TS/SCI clearance with CI poly. What I would bring to any public relations position includes effective communication skills, leadership, loyalty, and a deep-rooted commitment to excellence. I am a results-oriented, decisive leader with proven success in strategic thinking and problem solving. If these qualities appeal to you, please contact me at steven.mavica@gmail.com.

*** My Weekend, By Ned:

I flew to Bemidji, Minnesota on Friday morning. I was met by Ann Marie Ward of the Beltrami County 4-H. We had lunch at Slim’s, and she showed me the high points in town, the highest being Paul Bunyon and his ox, Babe. We connected with Cara Miller of the Minnesota 4-H Foundation and Cara and I drove up to Northome, population 230, passing between four deer on the highway along the way. At Northome High School (home of the Mustangs), I learned about the next day’s First Lego League robotics competition. Here we met up with Jan Derdowski, the regional director for 4-H and the staff that would be conducting the event. After training, Jan, Cara and I enjoyed dinner at the Powerhouse restaurant, which was hopping on a Friday night (we didn’t have a reservation). Our lodging for the evening was at the Clear Lake Resort Cabins (http://www.clearlakeresort.net/) on, yes, Clear Lake. Clear Lake is next to Dark Lake. Dark Lake is the clearer of the two. As Bob, our host, delivered towels and a coffee pot to my cabin, which was named Wolf Cabin (the ladies were in Loon cabin), he told me that I could probably hear wolves on a cold, night with a full moon, such as it was on Friday (0 degrees) (timber wolves were never actually eradicated in this neck of the wood). I didn’t spend too much time on my front porch listening because my shivering made it difficult to listen effectively. The robotics competition was terrific, the kids enthusiastic and the quality of effort very high. The theme was food safety. My wife sent me updates on the Army-Navy game during the afternoon. I judged the “Project” competition. After the event, Cara and I drove back to Bemidji. Since my Hampton Inn was next to the arena, I walked over to watch the Bemidji State University Beavers beat Denver. Ann Marie was back from Northome a little later, but I ran into her at the game, and afterwards she outfitted me with cold weather gear for the next morning’s adventure on the ice at Lake Irvine with some of young people involved in robotics at the Headwaters Science Center in Bemidji. They took me out on the ice at sunrise to put their SeaPerch in the water and test out their underwater camera. I was back at the hotel for lunch with Ann Marie and family before catching the 1:06 back to Minneapolis-St. Paul and home to DC in time for dinner. How’s that for a weekend!

*** Surface Warships 2012

Exploring the Future of Global Surface Combatant Fleets In a highly uncertain strategic environment, the ability to use the majority of the world's surface, and reach most of its population makes maritime forces those of choice for the world's main actors and their allies – and surface warships are key components of such forces. Their need to police the oceans against the dual threats of terrorism and piracy make surface warship programmes a crucial and indispensable part of the future maritime environment.

Surface Warships will provide the ideal environment for industry and naval professional to discuss innovative future designs and the need to keep current vessels battle ready through capability upgrades and refits.
