AFSAApplauds JSP Graduates

On Oct. 28, AFSA Presi-

dent Ambassador Barbara

Stephenson congratulated

graduates of the State

Department’s Job Search

Program. Amb. Stephenson

encouraged JSP participants

to rejoin AFSA as retiree

members to continue the

lifelong networking opportu-

nities offered by the associa-

tion—and reminded them

that switching from active-

duty to retiree status is not

an automatic process.

She also urged program

graduates to engage with

AFSA’s new 50-state strat-

egy to “take the story of the

Foreign Service out beyond

the Beltway.” She noted that

AFSA can provide talking

points and resources for

retirees and active service

members who speak at high

schools, colleges and social

groups.

If you join or establish a

retiree group, please contact

AFSA

(member@afsa.org

)

and let us know about your

outreach efforts and activi-

ties.
