PDI-POA, founded in North America, continues to expand membership and engagement with protocol professionals around the world. We believe that building global connections benefits all our members through expanded networks, support and learning opportunities.
At our recent Education Forums we have welcomed ever larger international attendance. There have been participants from countries including: Egypt, Lebanon, Russia, Canada, United Kingdom, South Africa, Nigeria, Ghana, Bahamas, Barbados, British Virgin Islands, Kenya, Trinidad and Tobago, Ireland, Bermuda. Germany, the Netherlands, and the United States.
Given the increase in international membership, participation at our annual Education Forum, one-day workshops and other events sponsored or endorsed by PDI-POA we anticipate that there may be interest in forming PDI-POA chapters in regions outside of North America. We have created a framework for that will allow us to do that when appropriate.
