Around 500 Texas A&M Forest Service employees gathered Wednesday for their annual personnel meeting in Temple. 

The meeting brought together employees who work throughout the Lone Star State. 

Staff received awards and talked about what is happening within the agency. 

"We had a significant fire season in Texas that lasted over 240 days. So, we talk about those kinds of things that are going on and what do we learn from them and how do we get ready for what happens next," said Tom Boggus, director of Texas A&M Forest Service. 

Texas A&M Forest Service officials said the meeting served as an opportunity to refocus agency-wide goals and discuss new initiatives.
