THE NEW CHIEF OF PROTOCOL

Capricia Marshal made the news by becoming the new Chief of Protocol of the United States. Prior to being Chief of Protocol, Marshall was the former White House Social Secretary during the Clinton Administration. The duties of the Chief of Protocol are numerous and varied; the best explanation of the job is found on this Web page.

I, as well as many others, enjoyed Capricia Marshal's swearing in ceremony - particularly when she shared a very funny story about being stuck outside the White House gate during the Clinton Inauguration. Attending the event gave me the chance to see many old friends. You can read more about the event in this The Washington Post article.
