AFSA/JOAQUINSOSA

On March 15, AFSA President Ambassador Barbara Stephenson kicked off AFSA’s new inreach initiative in an

early morning breakfast with roughly four dozen chiefs of mission (COMs), who were in town for the Global COM

Conference. During the course of one action-packed hour, this dedicated group of Foreign Service leaders tackled

the multifaceted issue of how to build a stronger Foreign Service equipped to lead America’s foreign policy in

the 21st century. AFSA thanks the FS champions who attended and significantly contributed to AFSA’s efforts to

fashion constructive solutions to today’s workforce challenges: family member employment, mentoring, diversity,

bidding and others.
