We are in the midst of developing a way for those interested in protocol, but who are not protocol professionals to keep in touch with us and to hear more about the topic. Becoming a Friend of Protocol will be open to anyone interested in the field of protocol. We will welcome you to be our ally in facilitating communication, understanding, and cooperation between individuals, governments and cultures.
Being a Friend will be for those who recognize the importance of our mission, but would not apply to membership in PDI-POA. If you are interested in becoming a member here’s the link to our membership page.
The plan is that Friends will receive our quarterly PDI-POA Friends of Protocol Briefing with articles by protocol professionals on best practices, reviews of and links to protocol resources, information how protocol is practiced in different arenas and more. You will also receive special invitations to a regional events hosted by the Association.
The yearly cost to be a PDI-POA Friend of Protocol is likely to be $25.00 USD. 100% of your donation would be in support of our mission to provide the highest level of collective expertise, training, information, and advice regarding internationally and nationally accepted rules of protocol. Protocol and Diplomacy International (PDI-POA) is a 501(c)(6) organization. Your contribution to PDI-POA would be fully tax-deductible for federal income tax purposes under the U.S. Internal Revenue Code. Individuals from other nations should consult with their tax codes to see if similar benefits may apply.
