National Protocol Officer Week

March 22-28, 2020 

This week recognizes protocol officers - the trusted advisers who plan and orchestrate international VIP visits, meetings, ceremonies and special events for the military, government, academia and business world.

Each year, contestants enter to win a complimentary tuition to attend Protocol Officer Training ($7,300.00 value).

From Houdini to Copperfield, magicians have fascinated generations of audiences throughout time with their ability to create illusions, use sleight of hand and pull off many a trick to make mysterious and mind-boggling marvels. Just like their magical counterparts, protocol officers around the world also use their “magic” on a daily basis—working behind the scenes to properly plan and orchestrate V.I.P. visits, ceremonies, meetings and special events on local, regional and international stages.
