New Diplomat Welcome


The New Diplomat Welcome (NDW) is our premier biannual event, when we welcome new diplomats and their families to the Washington, D.C. area and to THIS for Diplomats.

The morning event includes three components:

Coffee and Conversation: We begin by welcoming you and offering food, coffee, and connection with internationally minded Americans and other diplomats. During this time we distribute name tags to pre-registered attendees and register walk-ins (who we are just as happy to meet).

Meeting: Our president and New Diplomat Welcome Chairwoman formally welcome all attendees and talk about THIS for Diplomats. Other speakers usually include a long-time diplomat participant in THIS and a representative from our host, Meridian International.

Activity Fair: This is your opportunity to visit tables for each of our cultural exchange groups and program committees and sign up to participate.

Date of next New Diplomat Welcome: October 3, 2019
