Public Diplomacy Council, in collaboration with PDAA and other organizations, presented a day-long conference on U.S. Public Diplomacy: A Look to the Past, A Look to the Future. The event, which is also Public Diplomacy Council’s Fall Forum, took place on Tuesday, November 12, 2013 at Department of State’s George C. Marshall Conference Center.

The program featured a keynote speech by VOA director David Ensor, commemoration of USIA and State Department alumni, two morning panels, lunch, six breakout sessions, an afternoon panel, closing remarks, and photo gallery. Public Diplomacy Council expects to publish a proceedings volume from the event. Speakers, panel members, and breakout session participants included several PDAA members. Deborah Trent, one of the event’s organizers, gives a few highlights on the Public Diplomacy Council site.
