Champion of Civility: Jacqueline Viteri

Guest Blogger - Monday, June 12, 2017

This is how all started… Since I was a teenager I have attended several Etiquette Schools with the best professors in my country, Dominican Republic.

Picture Perfect Protocol - Drama.No.

Guest Blogger - Tuesday, March 28, 2017

My initial Protocol Officer Training in May 2016 helps me daily here at USAID. Without hesitation, my favorite aspect of protocol is never quite knowing exactly what I will be asked to assist with, resolve, mediate, mitigate, or plan each day!
