LETTER FROM THE FAOA PRESIDENT
On behalf of the FAOA Board of Governors, I want to thank you for being a part of the Foreign Area Officer Association professional community. If you were with us for the FAO Association’s recent 8th Annual Black Tie Dinner on 25 April, I think you will agree it was a true gala affair. We enjoyed the new Army Navy Country Club clubhouse, and its beautiful ballroom and outdoor decks as well as our excellent guest speaker, entertainment, special presentations, and open bar reception and night cap. We saw a lot of old friends and colleagues and met many new ones. If you were not able to make it this year, we do hope you can join us for our policy luncheons and also next year's Annual Dinner.
Below you will find link to the survey on the event which includes questions for those who attended and also were not able to attend, which we hope you will take a moment to complete in order to help us make our event even better next year and in the future:
