Diplomatic Advisory Council

The Diplomatic Advisory Council (DAC) is an informal body of current Ambassadors serving in the nation’s capital and serves as a direct outreach to our strategic allies abroad. All of our programming benefits from the input, guidance, and participation we receive from the members of DAC. Since its creation at the end of 2011, we are pleased that nearly thirty ambassadors have joined the Council.

For more information about the DAC, please contact Sabine Schleidt, Director of International Programs at 202-507-4849 or sschleidt -at- usafmc (dot) org.
