There are three categories of members in the Consular Corps of Washington, DC.
Full Members (Members of the Diplomatic Corps), Associate Members (Current Federal or Local Government officials or former US Consuls), and Supporting Members (Corporate Members). While Full and Associate membership is by individual, Supporting Membership is by organization.
Annual Membership runs from September through June. Annual dues for Full and Associate Members are $60.00 per person. Supporting Members pay $600.00 per year, which allows up to 3 colleagues from that organization to attend an event. Members may attend any of the Consular Corps sponsored events at the member price and have access to the Members Only reference library on the Consular Corps website.
Joining is easy! Simply download the Application for Membership, complete it, selecting the appropriate category of membership, and mail it in together with your check for the correct annual dues amount to Ms. Helene Bouchard, Treasurer, The Consular Corps of Washington DC, ℅ Embassy of Canada, 501 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Washington, DC, 20001. You will receive a receipt for your annual dues and your name will be added to the listserv so that you immediately begin receiving invitations to the Consular Corps events.
You can receive discounts on the cost of the professional lunches when you purchase either a Full Year (10 Lunches) or Half Year (5 Lunches) Lunch Punch Card. The Full Year Lunch Punch Card costs $350.00, or $35.00 per lunch, and the Half Year Lunch Punch Card costs $190.00, or $38.00 per lunch.
