Dear AAFSW Members and Friends,
As we stand at the threshold of a fresh new year, we pause to look back at 2023 with profound gratitude. The past year has been a testament to the dedication, generosity, and spirit of our members, volunteers, colleagues, and board members. Your vital contributions have been our organization’s force and inspiration; we are deeply thankful.
We are profoundly grateful for our esteemed members’ generous donations this month, enabling us to further our mission. Thank you for making a difference!
The success of the SOSA selection and ceremony and our international programs were a highlight of 2023. Our awardees’ positive impact on the American foreign affairs community and their invaluable assistance to the most vulnerable globally fills us with immense pride and gratitude.
These achievements were not just events but a reflection of the collective efforts of everyone involved. They underscore the ongoing, reciprocal support within the inter-agency community, demonstrating that our successes are not isolated incidents but the result of shared commitment and collaboration.
We extend our heartfelt thanks to each one of you.
We want to thank our long-time volunteers who are departing. Your loyalty, dedication, and meaningful impact on our organization will always be remembered and cherished. As we welcome new members, we are excited about your unique perspectives and renewed energy.
Our members and volunteers are the heart of AAFSW. Your unwavering support for the American foreign affairs community and effort to foster cross-cultural understanding is terrific.
As we bid farewell to 2023, our organization does so with a sense of accomplishment and gratitude. Let us carry this spirit of thankfulness into 2024 as we continue to work together to make a difference in our community. Here is a year of continued growth, success, and meaningful impact!
With deepest gratitude,
