Group Forum Intent: This is a restricted/closed group forum for the exchange of opinions, ideas, comments, job opportunities and other topics of general interest between current, former and retired members of the US Department of State Diplomatic Security.
Membership Criteria: The group is open to active duty, retired and former SAs, RSOs and SEOs. Peripheral civil service employees and past members of the US State Department associated with Diplomatic Security will also be considered.
Eligibility for membership will be verified and is dependent on the above criteria. To become a member and for confirmation of such, send an email to DSonlineforumemail@example.com with information on your DS ssociation, employment dates, who referred you to this forum, and any other information that would be helpful to determine your eligibility to join this forum. All provided information will be held within the limits of the fourm. NO ONE WILL BE ADMITTED TO THE FORUM MEMBERSHIP WITHOUT NAME AND SOME EVIDENCE OF DS AFFILIATION
Forum postings will be moderated and checked for excessiveness of any kind. Moderation will be very liberal and basically intended to prevent any spam, verbal wars or from discussions getting out of hand and maintain professionalism.
Needless to say, politics, religion are subjects to be avoided for obvious reasons, and no classified discussions will be permitted.
It is important to include a "signature line" when sending a message to the forum to include your name, dates of service etc. as this will identify you to other members (i.e., John Doe 74-99)
Please do not use a "gov" address as there is an issue with that. Please use a non-government email address instead.
