Stop Publishing State Magazine

Community Member kudos icon + Community member

State Magazine is published monthly. The purpose of the magazine is “to facilitate communication between management and employees at home and abroad and to acquaint employees with developments that may affect operations or personnel”.


All Department of State employees are required to have email accounts. The publication should be “Digital” only. Paper copies are delivered to our cubicles/offices religiously each month and many people throw them away without even taking a glimpse. This should stop. No more paper copies!

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
