Foreign Commercial Service

Steve Morrison, FCS Vice President

Steve Morrison, FCS Vice President, welcomes you to the FCS AFSA web page. As you may know, AFSA is a professional association as well as a union, and I rely on our strong member base to advance our interest in both areas. My AFSA Governing Board term runs from July 2015 to July 2017. The current top priorities are increasing funding for the entire U.S. Commercial Service/Global Markets, getting/protecting Overseas Comparability Pay, and ensuring that our new officer corps—NCOTs 4-6—are tenured in a safe and timely manner. I cannot stress enough this latter point and how important these 58—soon to be 64—individuals are to the organizational health and future of the Commercial Service. The FCS faces many challenges and I need your help to advance our concerns. Let me know your concerns!

You may contact me at if you have questions or concerns. My colleague Suzanne Platt serves alongside me as the FCS representative on the board.
