IFE welcomed the social secretaries of DC’s embassies to the Congressional Country Club for a luncheon to honor all the work they do as the diplomatic community’s gatekeepers. After more than a year of phone calls and Zoom videos we were delighted to meet in person and catch up! Luckily, the weather was perfect as guests from the Embassies of Japan, Belgium, Luxembourg, Australia, Colombia, Ireland, Monaco, the United Kingdom and Thailand joined IFE Founder and CEO Coach Kemper and Ambassador Capricia Marshall, former U.S. State Department’s Chief of Protocol, for sea-breezes, free-flowing dialogue and relaxation on the club’s Great Lawn.

Thank you for coming out, and for all the work you do!
