SAVE THE DATE - Foreign Affairs Day – May 3, 2024
This year’s Foreign Affairs Day will be a hybrid event and will take place on Friday, May 3, 2024. We are planning a full day of events including interactive break-out sessions, hosted by regional and functional bureaus, to highlight current policy issues, the Secretary’s priorities, and modernization agenda (https:///www.state.gov). As you know, this is our homecoming. It provides a chance to celebrate our global workforce, spend time with former colleagues, and honor those who gave their lives in service of American diplomacy. Along with partner organizations we are planning to host a very special Foreign Affairs Day, a co-branded program that will highlight the Foreign Service/AFSA centennial. If you wish to receive an invitation, please contact ForeignAffairsDay@state.gov.
