IN THIS ISSUE

Greetings! We hope you had a pretty and productive week! This week's top stories include information about TTB operations during the recent east coast blizzard, a bit of TTB nostalgia, and a list of the past week's top TTB Learning Center pages at TTB.gov/.

TTB OPERATIONS NOT GREATLY IMPACTED AS A RESULT OF THE BLIZZARD OF 2016

Due to our extensive telework policy and our online application systems, TTB operations in the Washington, DC area were not greatly impacted during and after the blizzard that hit the metro area last weekend.  Even though our headquarters offices were physically closed on Monday and Tuesday, our telework policy stipulates that under such circumstances employees who are telework capable should do so or take leave.  Also, the storm did not impact our online applications so industry members were able to submit and correct applications for permits, labels, and formulas throughout the storm and subsequent massive clean-up efforts.  Many TTB employees in the area worked from home on label approvals, beverage alcohol formulas, regulations projects, and other critical work done by our DC area offices.
