Members of the HOL Working Group will share their personal experiences, leadership skills, and perspectives to help shape and promote the HOL Program, and will play an important role in representing Field Office needs and perspectives to the Washington Office.

Working Group members were selected from a slate of applications submitted by BLM employees nationwide.
