The U.S. Advisory Commission on Public Diplomacy (ACPD) will hold a public meeting in person with online access from 11:00 a.m. until 12:15 p.m., Monday, February 26, 2024.  In addition to discussing the Commission’s recently published 2023 Comprehensive Annual Report on Public Diplomacy and International Broadcasting, a panel of current and former ACPD commissioners, executive directors, and longtime research and policy partners will reflect on the ACPD’s 75 years of service to the White House, Congress, and the American people.

This meeting is open to the public, including the media and members and staff of governmental and non-governmental organizations.  The event will take place at the George Washington University’s Elliott School of International Affairs (room 602), 1957 E St NW, Washington, DC 20052.

Congress created the bipartisan ACPD in 1948 to appraise U.S. government activities intended to understand, inform, and influence foreign publics.  The Commission conducts research that provides honest assessments of public diplomacy efforts and disseminates findings through reports, white papers, and other publications.  It also holds public symposia that generate informed discussions on public diplomacy issues. The Commission reports to the President, Secretary of State, and Congress.

For more information about the ACPD, its public meetings, congressionally mandated annual reports, and special reports, such as the recent assessment of the integration of DEIA principles into public diplomacy practices, please visit the ACPD website.
