AFSA and the Foreign Service community celebrate Foreign Service Day 2016. During the afternoon, AFSA will honor those who gave their lives in service to their nation during our memorial plaque ceremony in Department's C Street lobby. In the afternoon, beginning at 4:15 p.m., AFSA welcomes all members to a happy hour/reception at our headquarters building.
Invitations to the day's programmed activities were mailed out in March. In recent years the luncheon in the Benjamin Franklin Room has been very popular and has sold out extremely quickly. If you wish to reserve seats (two seats maximum), please mail in your RSVP and lunch payment check (made payable to Foreign Affairs Day) as soon as you receive your invitation. Luncheon seats are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis upon receipt of payment. Please email any questions you may have to firstname.lastname@example.org. (Note that AFSA does not organize these activities; you must contact the Department of State’s coordinator using the above email address.)
