Deputy Secretary Negroponte to Keynote Foreign Affairs Day.
The day will also feature seminars on regional issues, sponsored by the geographic bureaus, on public diplomacy, on consular affairs and on retirement issues. The retirement seminar will be led by Patricia Nelson-Douvelis, director of the Office of Retirement.
The program concludes with a luncheon for 250 in the Benjamin Franklin Room, where Ambassador Thomas will award the Director General's Cups for the Civil and Foreign Services. Ambassador J. Stapleton Roy, former U.S. Ambassador to the People's Republic of China, Singapore and Indonesia, and former Assistant Secretary of State for Intelligence and Research, will deliver the luncheon address. Due to limited seating only the first 250 luncheon reservations can be accepted on a "first come, first served" basis.
Foreign Affairs Day, which began in 1965, includes Foreign and Civil Service retirees. More than 600 people registered for the 2007 event.
