To: All CIS Employees
From: Director Aguirre
Date: September 22, 2003

Now that we are into our second six months of U. S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIS), I am pleased to announce the permanent appointments of the following key CIS management personnel. This announcement includes positions at CIS Headquarters, Field Offices, Asylum Offices and Service Centers. These appointments are just the beginning. The remaining District Director, Asylum Director, and Officer-in-Charge positions will be announced through the competitive process within the next thirty days.

I am confident that these initial appointees, and those that will follow, are the right team members to lead CIS into the future. Through these dedicated leaders, I am sure that we will achieve our common goals of reducing backlogs and improving customer service while protecting the national security of the United States.
