Platinum members will be invited to most TLG membership activities to include TLG-sponsored and co-sponsored events, receptions and dinners, and State Department and USAID high profile events.
Platinum members will also be invited to a No Host “Lifetime Membership Appreciation Luncheons” to be held at the State Department 7th floor dining room on a quarterly basis. TLG will seek the attendance of senior level officers from the Secretary’s office (e.g. the Deputy Secretary of State, Director General) and the Assistant Secretaries or Principal Deputy Secretary Assistant Secretaries from the Regional bureaus. These quarterly luncheons provide a forum for senior officials to update Lifetime Members on Department’s and Regional Bureau’s Diversity and Inclusion initiatives, as well as lines of effort to recruit and retain African-American officers.
Finally, Platinum members will be invited to participate in the semi-annual in-person or virtual (phone or VTC) TLG Town Hall session. The Town Halls are to engage Lifetime and Platinum members on RTI initiatives, and to solicit ideas on how to strategically engage the Department’s senior leadership on TLG membership issues, concerns and priorities.
