Obama Taps Federal Education Association Exec as Advisor

By Cynthia McCabe

February 26, 2010 -- President Barack Obama this week announced his intent to appoint H.T. Nguyen, executive director and general counsel for the Federal Education Association, to his National Council on Federal Labor-Management Relations. The Association, a state affiliate of the National Education Association, represents federally-employed educators.

In his capacity as a Council member, Nguyen will advise the President on labor-management relations in the executive branch. Nguyen joins eight other men and women selected for appointments to the Council, created in 2009.

""I am grateful that these distinguished men and women have offered their wise counsel to help foster successful labor-management relations within the executive branch," President Obama said. "I look forward to continuing this important dialogue with them for years to come."

Previously, Nguyen served as the deputy general counsel for FEA (1988-1998), where he was the Association's lead attorney in all major cases involving FEA. Prior to that, he was a staff attorney with FEA (1984-1988). He holds a B.A. (American Government), an M.A. (International Relations), and a J.D from the Catholic University of America.
