CDC speaker to keynote annual security meeting [fr]
On Monday May 7 the Consulate will welcome Dr. Stephen Redd from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as the keynote speaker for its annual Security Committee.
Redd, who works in the Office of Public Health Preparedness and Response, will join the consulate’s annual Security Committee to share his expertise on public health protection in crisis situations (such as Ebola and H1N1) with our elected consular advisors, honorary consuls, chiefs of districts, and the consulate’s agents and partners.
During the gathering the French Consulate will also present a new federal consular psychological support unit which has been organized by the 10 French consulates in the United States. The unit will be activated to support French citizens and their families in the event of a crisis impacting the United-States.
An annual honorary consuls meeting for the Southeast jurisdiction will be held approximately two weeks prior on April 25.
Honorary consuls offer proximity consular services to the French citizens in their specific areas (such as transmission of new passports, simple administrative requests and general information). The eight honorary consuls will travel to Atlanta from Hattiesburg (MS), Mobile (AL), Savannah (GA), Charleston (SC), Greenville (SC), Charlotte (NC), Raleigh (NC) and Nashville (TN) in order to share their consular activity reports and get the latest updates on public services for French citizens in the United-States.
