The Consular Corps is an association of career consular officers and other foreign diplomats, federal and local government officials and corporations which work directly with the diplomatic corps in Washington. The organization brings consuls and other diplomats together with top level officials of the Federal and Local Government who make or implement policies critical for conducting consular duties, and sponsors superior training events to help consuls effectively execute their duties here in the United States.
