A Message from Our President

Kia Ora and Welcome to the website of the Consular Corps of Washington DC!

I am pleased you are on this page, thank you.

You are welcome to look through this site to learn about the Consular Corps and what we do, and if you are not yet a member, we hope you will consider joining this respected group made up of consular and corporate professionals.

The Consular Corps has one of the most active calendars in Washington DC! We offer a list of exciting events ranging from monthly programs covering a wide array of essential topics and issues, several morning training sessions throughout the “Diplomatic Year,” and highly enjoyable social gatherings that allow members to get to know each other in an informal setting.

Coming from a small country (New Zealand), the benefit in networking and sharing experiences with others in similar roles is invaluable.  This group is made up of members from a great many countries, and we are looking to welcoming more countries to the group. So please feel free to contact me directly, or any one of our Board Members for more information and to find out how you, too, can become a member.

To our returning Members, thank you! We value your continued support and contribution and look forward to another successful and enjoyable year!

Best regards,

Angila Woodham

President, The Consular Corps of Washington, DC
Counsellor (Management and Consul)
