    Col. Ellen M. Moore took command of the Air Reserve Personnel Center here May 26, 2016.

    Moore became the 35th commander when she assumed command in a ceremony officiated by Lt. Gen. James F. Jackson, chief of the Air Force Reserve and commander of the Air Force Reserve Command.

    Before conducting the assumption, Jackson addressed those in attendance, specifically the members of ARPC. "You are always looking for a better way to do business and take care of our Airmen. That is the part of innovation that our Air Force needs, that is the part of bold leadership that our Air Force needs, and that is exactly the part I want to say thank you to our ARPC team," he said. "I'm going to provide you with exactly the type of leader that is going to make you successful and continue to take it to the next level. I know you'll keep up the great work with your new leader."

    Upon assuming command, Moore commented on her new position. "For several years I thought, boy it would be really neat to be the commander of ARPC. I never thought I would be standing here today," she said. "This is a true honor and I hope to make you proud in this important assignment. To the men and women of ARPC, it is an incredible honor to stand here before you as your new commander."

    Moore is the former Director of Manpower, Personnel and Services, Headquarters Air Force Reserve Command, Robins Air Force Base, Ga.

    She was commissioned in 1987 through the Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps program at The Ohio State University where she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration and has a Master of Public Administration degree from the University of Oklahoma.

    "As an Ohio State grad, I found a great leadership quote from Coach Urban Meyer … he stated ‘A leader is someone who earns trust, sets a clear standard, and equips and inspires people to meet that standard,'" she said. "My first goal is to earn your trust as a leader. It’s something that won’t happen overnight, but I can assure you that as your commander I care for each and every one of you and I believe that together we can continue to accomplish great things and move the ball down the field."

    ARPC is responsible for personnel support to nearly 1.3 million Air National Guard, Air Force Reserve and retired members, ensuring they are ready to deliver strategic Total Force war-fighting capability for the Air Force. From initial entry to retirement, the center provides world-class support for "Generations of Airmen" throughout their military careers. The center is a major command direct reporting unit of Air Force Reserve Command.

    Moore concluded the ceremony by saying, "As we continue to progress forward … my priority is to always consider the effects on our customers before we make any changes. I always want to balance the needs of the men and women here at ARPC with the needs of our 1.3 million customers world-wide.

    "If each and every one of you aren’t happy to come to work today, every day, and don’t feel you can take care of your families and have a balance, then we have a problem," she said. "My job is to ensure we continue to have an environment where we have a balance between family and work. I assure you that ARPC has been and will continue to be in good hands and team ARPC will continue to provide outstanding customer service."
