                                         Is Telework for You?
                             by Cheryl Deckard, AFAA VP, Aviation Chapter

                                          Recently, I had the opportunity to try teleworking during the audit report
                                          writing phase of my project. If someone would have asked me the first day
                                          if I liked it, I would have said it was okay. By the end of the first week or
                                          two, I would have said I hated it. By the end of the third week, I would say
                                          it was great for both the Government and me personally. Let me explain.
                                          The first day, I was excited and actually found myself working more hours
                                          than I would have if I was at the office. That was due to time savings in the
                                          morning and evening commute as well as a more flexible work day. All that
                                          was great, but I soon realized the frustration of trying to do things from
   home that I had previously done at the office. Let’s see, I need to talk to someone in finance--what is his phone
   number? Oops, I’d better get that information and put it in my home office. I received an ASMC e-mail I need
   to send out to all the members. Hmmm, can't do that from home--will have to put that off until I go into the of-
   fice. I need some information on my audit topic for additional history. But, I can't…. that information is on
   a .mil site and they won't let me in. As you can see, it took some time to get settled into it. Now, though, it has
   been over a month, and I think it is a very valuable benefit. I find that I can get work done faster and more effi-
   ciently with fewer interruptions and less distractions. I’ve even developed some better organizational skills in the

   For those of you considering telework, I developed a listing that shows my views regarding the pros and cons and
   some tips I learned to make telecommuting more efficient. It may give you some insight into teleworking so you
   can decide if it’s right for you.

   •     Work schedule flexibility
   •     Very few interruptions
   •     Easier to focus on tasking at hand
   •     Lower gas consumption – I saved at least 10 gallons per week
   •     Can work around home requirements (e.g., waiting on a repairman)
   •     Office time is more productive
   •     I’ve become more organized and structured
   •     Relaxed setting (putting my feet up on the couch)
   •     Save time getting ready for work in the morning (fuzzy slippers instead of shoes)
   •     Save time driving to and from work

   •     Computer related
   •     Can't get to everything on web mail – size limitations and file size
   •     Dial-up connection is too slow

  •   Personally-owned equipment use - printer cartridge, cell phone and internet service
  •   Can't access global address book and some web sites will not let you in because you are not “.mil”
  •   Miss face to face interaction and office social events
  •   Reminding family/friends that I am really “at work” to minimize interruptions
  •   Feedback is not as quick as if you were in the office
  •   Requires more coordination with supervisor regarding workpaper reviews
  •   Sometimes no matter how well you prepare while at the office, you end up not having everything you need at
  •   Perception and comments from others as if you are not doing anything while teleworking

                                          Tips to make telecommuting more efficient
  ∗   Develop an agreement that details what is expected during the telework time period.
  ∗   Contact your supervisor if you have to deviate from the plan. Adjustments can be made but have to be agreed upon.
  ∗   Determine what information to take home; schedule time at the office to get things done (sending out group e-mail
      or use .mil web sites) that can't be done by web mail at home. Good planning and organizational skills are a must.
  ∗   Make sure you have access to a high-speed internet connection.
  ∗   Hold e-mail that has to be sent to a wide audience for days you are in the office if possible. If not, plan to go into
      the office sooner than projected. Also, consider consolidating messages that have a wide audience that way you
      don't have to send so many e-mails and slow the system down.
  ∗   Practice good and frequent communication with your supervisor.
  ∗   Make a note of those topics that you would prefer to handle one on one and save them for the office days if possible.
  ∗   Spend a day or two per week in the office.
  ∗   Let family and friends know that you are at work when they call and you will get back with them when you take a
      break or are at the end of your day. Surprisingly, this gets better after the first week.
  ∗   Make sure you have an office phone roster at home so you can call people when you need to communicate quickly.
  ∗   Be flexible.
  ∗   Make a list of the things you need to do in the office.
  ∗   Keep a time log of your progress for yourself and your supervisor to review. Periodically discuss your work with
      your supervisor to ensure that the work you agreed upon is being accomplished.
  ∗   Try to schedule the days you will be in the office to coincide with social events.

                              Telework - A Supervisor’s Perspective
                                         by Randy Story

  Having done my masters research paper on telecommuting, I already knew the pros and cons of tele-
  commuting. Of course, the unspoken perception is that teleworkers are not really working while at
  home. Although, in reality, research has shown that teleworkers are actually more productive while
  enjoying the numerous benefits of working from home. The audit profession is ideal for telecom-
  muting because so much of the process is not location-based and is done on a computer. The biggest
  unknown with telecommuting is how a person will handle working in an isolated setting.

  My research paper was my only experience with telecommuting; however, my initial thought was
  that it would be a positive experience. So when I heard Cheryl voice a concern about rising fuel
  costs, I suggested she try telecommuting. The entire experience was positive. The number one thing
  that made this experience a success was the frequent communication by telephone and e-mail. Be-
  cause Cheryl and I communicate so frequently there was never any concern about productivity. Con-
  tacting Cheryl was easy. Information was only a phone call or an e-mail away; and with e-mail, we
  easily passed information back and forth.

  This recent experience has really confirmed my positive perspective about the use of telework. I
  would highly encourage others to try it out.

    HDL                    47             59   (greater than 45 is favorable)
    LDL                  136             117   (less than 130-100 is favorable)
    Triglycerides          56             54   (normal 0 -249)

    These numbers may not mean much to you; however they mean a lot to me because they are mine. I went
    to my doctor for a routine annual check-up. This checkup included lab work. I was disappointed with
    what I saw. My cholesterol level was getting out of control. High cholesterol runs in my family. I knew
    I didn’t want to take cholesterol medication, so I thought about what I could do to improve my labs.

    How did I improve these numbers? I began to work out three times a week consistently. Once I began
    my routine, I was disappointed if something came up that made me miss my exercise class. Although I
    worked out previously, my exercise time was hit or miss. If I worked out it was okay, if I didn’t it was
    okay. I discovered that an early morning workout best fits my schedule. When I worked out in the eve-
    nings, it was easy to talk myself out of working out, since there was always something to be done, i.e.,
    taking the kids to activities, doing laundry, grocery shopping, etc.

    Initially, I was a little disappointed with the results of my workout. Several times during the week, I
    would jump on the scale. Instead of losing weight, I was gaining. Even though I was gaining, my clothes
    were beginning to fit better. After a conversation with my workout instructor, I found out I was gaining
    muscle, which weighs more than fat. My clothes were fitting better because, although I was gaining
    weight, I was losing inches. My instructor encouraged me to continue working out and told me that even-
    tually the weight would begin to drop. Now instead of using the scale to measure how successful my
    workout is, I use the way my clothes fit to evaluate success.

    In addition to better labs, muscle gain and weight loss, exercise class has provided me with another bene-
    fit. Once I began my exercise class, I made new friends. We became one another’s motivation. My exer-
    cise mates and I have formed a strong bond. We have helped one another cope with many things includ-
    ing serious illnesses and pregnancy. (Our class is expecting its first baby in March)

    In summary, what are the benefits I have experienced since I began working out? Better lab results, more
    muscle, less fat and new friends. Exercise, it’s worth it.

                                     Selected Meeting Minutes—Jan 05

  MEETING REVIEW: Awards – There was discussion regarding how to recognize the recipient(s) of
  the Essay Award since the essays are not due until after the Mini-PDI. In the past plaques have been pre-
  sented to the winners. It was determined that this should be a discussion item for the next Executive
  Board Meeting. Communications – Lt Col Rhodes noted that the latest version of the Chapter Newslet-
  ter included no articles from the membership. Ms. Uyhelyi used a free publication by author John Max-
  well. PDI Chapter Booth – Ms. Sue Bacas has resigned and Ms. Debbie Ward has been named co-chair.
  The Committee is still waiting for the letter with details of the PDI. Professional Development The
  CDFM subcommittee efforts are on hold until after the Mini-PDI. The Committee is working on getting
  the speakers lined up to tape the sessions and make the tapes available to the membership. Programs –
  Ms. Marino and Ms. Evans noted that they will not continue on the Programs Committee next year and
  are looking for interested members who may be interested in the Committee to work with them for the
  remainder of this year. There has been some confusion regarding the DVs. While they are no longer sit-
  ting at a “head table”, they are still to be recognized. Ticket Reps need to mark their forms noting any
  DVs to be in attendance and the DV’s title. Ways & Means – Mr. Reams stated that Entertainment Book
  sales were very low this year (approximately 60 were sold). He is closing out this fundraiser now and
  does not yet know what the profit will be. Kings Island opportunities will begin again in April. AFMC
  VP Lt Col Rhodes will be deploying and Mr. Mac McCutcheon will serve as the AFMC Alternate.
  DFAS: There was discussion regarding the upcoming closure of DFAS-Dayton and the fact that the By-
  Laws will need to be revised. OLD BUSINESS: Short Course Sponsorship - Mr. Kain stated that for
  now, this will be limited to the Audiocasts sponsored by National. Discuss plan (Ad Hoc Committee-
  Scholarship) for procedures to use to fund member(s) to the PDI (number of scholarships, criteria, what
  we can pay for, estimated cost, how the Chapter will make payments). Ms. Jankowski is still waiting for
  a response from National to know if it is okay to provide PDI attendees with prepaid credit cards that have
  checks and balances. An updated will be provided at the next meeting. Ms. Johnson stated that there will
  be an open solicitation to the membership 1-15 Mar 06 for members who would like to be sponsored by
  Aviation Chapter. The decision will be made at the April Executive Board Meeting. Professional Devel-
  opment: Feedback on the 15 Dec 05 audiocast sponsored by National. There were 30 to 45 people signed
  up to attend the audiocast but due to weather, there were 16 in attendance. There was not a lot of feed-
  back, but the process worked well and Mr. Kain says if the funds are available, the Board should consider
  offering this again. The Chapter will not participate in the February audiocast due to the mini-PDI.

            The next meeting will be held 14 Feb 06, 0900 in the HQ AFMC/A8P Conference Room.

  tion of new Chapter officers.

        Dayton Air Show: (15-17 Jul 05) ASMC teamed with AFSA and NDTA to operate the beer con-
  cessions stands for the Dayton Air Show. A total of 20 ASMC members volunteered to run the Runway
  Blast Show on Friday night and concession stands on Saturday and Sunday. A total of approximately
  $2700 was earned for the Aviation Chapter. Thanks to all who volunteered!

  August: ASMC and SCEA joined forces to host the annual ASMC/SCEA Golf Outing on August 12th.

  making this yet another successful golf outing. Pictures are available at the Aviation Chapter public web-
  site: asmcaviation.org

  September:         Our monthly luncheon was held on September 6th at the Club and Banquet Center. Major General
  (Ret) Everett Odgers, former Director of Financial Management, AFMC Comptroller, and current President and
  COO for Green Tree Group, gave an interesting presentation on "Transformation". Major General (Ret) Odgers
  shared his ideas and provided examples of events that occur in both the public and private sector of how transforma-
  tion affects all. The Aviation Chapter of ASMC was truly fortunate to have the opportunity to hear the outstanding

       USAF Marathon (17 Sep 05): ASMC sponsored one team of four Chapter members and five individual
  Chapter members in the Full USAF Marathon—26.2 miles! The team name was “Spare Change” and members
  included: Kathy Hall, Capt Lisa Wildman, Capt Noelia Suarez, and1Lt Troy Suarez. The individual-sponsored
  Chapter members were: James (Jim) Teaters, Robert (Bob) Coletto, Robert Craven, Ann Ring (former CMSgt),

  sored members adorned grey tee-shirts with green lettering. Thanks to all who lent support!

  October:       Ms. Susan Sandberg, Education and Training Flight Instructor, gave a dynamic presentation on
  "Personality Dragons - How to Handle Their Heat" at our luncheon held on October 18th. Ms. Sandberg gave tips on
  the different types of personality dragons (PD), how to recognize a PD, and how to manage or cope with the dragons
  in our lives. The information provided was invaluable and can assist each of us in our professional and personal
  journeys. In the words of Ms. Sandberg, "You teach others how to treat you! People can't push your buttons unless
  you show them the panel!!"

  tional 176 adult tickets and 7 children’s tickets were sold, 24 season ticket holders attended and 59 parking

  November: Our monthly luncheon was held on November 15. ASMC welcomed Lt Col Trent
  Edwards, 88 CPTS/FM, who spoke about his deployment experience.

       The Aviation Chapter joined forces with the First Sergeant's Association and the Family Support
  Center in providing Thanksgiving Food Baskets for WPAFB families and it was a success! Items do-
  nated that were not on the menu list were added to the Airman's Pantry. MSgt. Rhonda Clayton passed
  on her and the Family Support Center's appreciation for the generosity of the ASMC membership. Be-
  cause of the quantity of food donated from the membership, the Family Support Center will be doubling
  the size of the Thanksgiving Food baskets.

  December: Many of our ASMC members were very good during 2005, as evidenced by the gifts they
  received from Santa's personal elf, Elf Patty, at our holiday luncheon. We all enjoyed delicious food, fun
  games, great company, and cheery singing! Many thanks to our carolers, Elf Patty, and all the people who
  worked hard to throw yet another successful luncheon.

  The Aviation Chapter made WPAFB community children smile on Christmas morning. We supported the
  Adopt-A-Family holiday gift program through an Angel Tree.

       Audio Conference: 16 people attended the 15 December 2005 National HQ Audio Cast, "Fiscal
  Law and Contractor Employees in the Federal Workplace" held at AFIT. Matt Reres, from the Office of
  General Counsel for the Army, provided the instruction. It was very informative, and we may participate
  in similar sessions in the future.

  January: Maj. Gen (Ret) Charles Metcalf gave a briefing on current programs, and the plans that the
  National Museum of the Air Force has for the future. More building to house new acquisitions, and a
  conference center are in the works.
