Welcome to the online home of the AFSA USAID Vice President - and, by extension, all USAID members. I am here on your behalf to protect your interests, listen to your opinions, and answer your questions. AFSA monitors and works closely with the Agency, especially Human Resources, to assure that labor agreements are followed. Our relationship with HR is collaborative and we work diligently to prevent problems from occurring. When they do, we strive to arrive at the best outcome on your behalf. We are motivated by the following Core Values: Responsiveness; Effectiveness; Integrity; Efficiency; Teamwork; Courage; Empowerment; and Patriotism. In summary, we represent you and pledge our support when you need us. So, please feel free to contact us anytime via email or telephone.
