Burn Bag: Foreign Service Promotion Panel Members — Ranks Missing

Via Burn Bag:

 

“So, the list of Foreign Service Selection Board (promotion panel) members now includes only names and posts/domestic offices where currently assigned.  No ranks.

In other words, it is certainly possible for an unpaid summer intern to serve on a Foreign Service promotion panel.  At least, there’s nothing in the announcement to indicate otherwise.”

“State just announced its 2015 Foreign Service Selection Board membership.  One name in particular somehow manages to serve on promotion panels year after year, and this year is no exception.  God complex, much?  There should be a limit on how many promotion panels you sit on — let some fresh eyes do the reviewing of colleagues’ performance.”
