Meet with Director Nanos
I am one of a handful of staff members who is scheduled to meet with Director Nanos on January 31 for one of his "brown-bag" meetings. Management is not allowed to attend these meetings. The purported reason for the meetings is to allow staff to bring up topics of concern for the Director to address. According to the reports from other staffers who have attended these meetings, the meetings are somewhat one-sided, with the Director telling those present why his previous 1/2 years worth of management decisions were justified. Reportedly, very little input to the Director has actually occurred in past brown bag meetings. My division is having trouble filling the 10 seats available for the 1/31 meeting, but I intend to go, if only to observe the Director's demeanor first-hand.
