Who Can Join?

Regular membership in AAFSW is open to all employees of the U.S. foreign affairs agencies and their adult family members who have served or are subject to serve at a U.S. diplomatic mission, including divorced or widowed spouses. From its origin as a group of female spouses, AAFSW has expanded its membership to include the whole Foreign Service community, active and retired.
