Who We Are

Protocol officers work in government, corporations, and universities to implement international codes of conduct and facilitate decision-making between business and world leaders. Founded in 2002, Protocol & Diplomacy International – Protocol Officers Association (PDI-POA) is a nonprofit that supports protocol officers by providing training and continued education forums, networking opportunities, and mentorship.

The Annual Education Forum

Registration for our flagship annual event is now open. The Forum is a chance for protocol professionals to expand your knowledge, refresh your skills, and reunite with colleagues from around the world.
