Who to invite l.jpg
Who to invite

  • Invitations should be based upon the purpose of the event?

    • Business event or social event

      Make sure to address your envelope to who you want to attend, ie. If spouses are invited make sure you include on the address line. (Example: MG and Mrs. James Myles)

  • Considerations for who to invite:

    • The General

    • The General’s Spouse (will other spouses be attending)?

    • The Command Sergeant Major’s!!!! They are an essential part of the Command TEAM.

    • Deputy to the General

      • Just in case the General must cancel at the last minute

    • Other key personnel from the General’s Staff

      • Invite staff that support your company/purpose of your event


How to invite l.jpg
How to invite

  • Contact General Officers front office to get on calendar or you can call protocol office or the Public Affairs Office to have them check.

    • Months in advance is better than weeks in advance

    • Do not be surprised if the calendar changes

      Key information that you will need to make sure you

      pass on to the individual you are coordinating with is:

  • Purpose of the event (Business, social, spouses)

  • Intent for the General

  • Keynote speaker, VIP guest, or “throwing dirt” at Ground Breaking

    KEY: Follow-up phone call with a formal letter of invitation

Planning & Preparing for the event

  • Obtain a copy of the Generals biography

  • Arrange to have a reserved parking space

  • Provide seating arrangements to staff

Welcome you VIP at the door

Socialize the General among the guests

Checkout before & during the event:

Briefing slides

Microphone (Lapel, hand held, or wireless)

Sound system

Make sure the aide has all the necessary information:

Demographics of the group

Biographies on key people attending the event

List of guests at the table or where the General is seated

Background information about your company


Don ts l.jpg
DON’Ts

  • Go directly to the General to ask if they can participate/attend your function.

  • Pay for their meal.

  • Provide any “Thank You” gifts for more than $25

  • Monopolize their time…others may want to talk

  • Conduct business…not the time to negotiate a contract.

  • Be offended if the General must depart early


Introductions l.jpg
INTRODUCTIONS

  • “You have to respect power, others’ as well as your own.” –Steve Bochro

  • The name of the official is always spoken first.

  • The name of the nonofficial is always spoken last.

  • Example:

  • General Campbell, I would like to introduce to you Ms. Barbie Baugh, President of the XYZ Corporation. General Campbell is the Commanding General for the US Army Space and Missile Defense Command/Army Forces Strategic Command.

  • HINT: No matter what the rank of General when you speak to them or refer to them they are always “General”.


International protocol l.jpg
International Protocol

  • Protocol is no longer relegated to the international diplomat community alone. A knowledge of business protocol is necessary for anyone engaged in global business and exchange.

  • You must be an envoy for the firm you represent, equipped with a knowledge and understanding of the business and social customs of the persons with whom you are negotiating.
