October 5, 2017 Washington DC - American Security Programs Diplomatic Security Officers working at the Delegation of the European Union to the United States in Washington DC have voted unanimously to join LEOSU-DC. The Delegation of the European Union to the United States represents the European Union in the United States, working close coordination with the Embassies and Consulates of the 28 EU Member States.
The Delegation of the European Union to the United States promotes EU policies in the United States, which includes presenting and explaining EU actions to the U.S. Administration and Congress. By engaging with political actors, the media, academia, business, and civil society, we raise awareness of EU issues and concerns, and promote the importance of the EU-U.S. relationship among the American public. We also analyze and report on the political, social, and economic situation in the U.S. to our headquarters in Brussels.
"This victory is the first of its kind in regards to organizing Embassies. Presently there are 177 resident Embassies in Washington DC and to the best of our knowledge only the Delegation of the European Union to the United States in Washington DC is organized" noted LEOSU-DC Organizing Director Steve Maritas. With that said, "our Union is now presently setting the course to begin organizing the rest of these Embassies throughout Washington DC".
We wish to welcome the American Security Programs Officers Working at the Delegation of the European Union to the United States in Washington DC into the LEOSU and LEOSU-DC family.
