Today marks the 61st Anniversary of the creation of . We wish them a happy anniversary!
On Tuesday, an historic moment for DACOR and DACOR Bacon House Foundation - gathering all but one of the living counselors of USAID (Dave Eckerson would have joined us if it wasn't for a pesky cold) in one place to celebrate the 61st anniversary of the founding of the agency during the 70th year of DACOR. 72 people broke bread together and listened to the counselors share stories and observations of their time as counselor to the administrator, which is the top career position at the agency. We were honored and pleased to welcome the newly installed counselor Clinton White to whom we raised a glass and toasted to his future success and pledged to be a support and refuge to him as the home of the Foreign Affairs family. Thank you to DACOR members Tom Staal and Lynn Northcutt Vega and Kristy Mordhorst for organizing and spreading the word and to and Young Professionals in International Affairs for co-sponsoring the evening reception. DACOR looks forward to welcoming many new members to the fold as a result. If you are a Foreign Affairs Professional, you are welcome to join DACOR and make us your home away from home. https://www.dacorbacon.org/membership.php
