UAA invites all USAID alumni – whether a member of UAA or not – to its Spring Reception
May 17, 6-8 PM.
The reception will take place in the patio of DACOR House at 1801 F Street NW, Washington,
DC. (if the weather is inclement we will move inside).
The current UAA Board members will be on hand to meet you, to answer your questions
and to solicit your suggestions regarding the Association. This is also an opportunity
to bring an alumni colleague with you, whether FS, GS, PSC, FSN or other. Of course
spouses are welcome. There is no cover charge and there will be a cash bar.
The closest metro stop are Foggy Bottom (23rd and I Streets) and Farragut West (18th
and I Streets), both located on the Blue and Orange lines, and there are several
parking lots within walking distance. Meter parking is available on the streets
We look forward to seeing you!
“Where in the World?” – USAID Staff Movements
Because of strong USAID alumni interest in keeping apprised of USAID staff movements
(promotions, retirements, etc.), USAID will allow the UAA to publish
Where In The World-Staff Movement. A sampling of USAID staff movements since July
2011 can be found below and the full list can be found by clicking here
