Consuls: Grant the title of Emissary on your most trusted confidants
Throughout the ages, consuls have had trusted confidants to whom they have turned to perform sensitive tasks for their consulates. Ask any active consul and they will tell you who they trust to get things done, in the capital cities of the countries they represent, in the city of their residence, or in other places where the constituents and represented countries have interests. Most will give you several names without hesitation.
The Order of Consular Emissaries is a group of such individuals organized by verified consul members of the Consular Chamber of Commerce. The Consular Chamber of Commerce is an independent, multinational, not-for-profit, non-political organization based within the consular corps of the world.
The Order of Consular Emissaries documents and databases information on emissaries for consular and public use, at www.consul.cc. When a consul anywhere in the world needs the services of a trusted emissary in an unfamiliar territory, they need only search in the Order of Consular Emissaries database.
Consular Emissaries may charge nominal fees for missions accepted, when payment is appropriate and available. Consular Emissaries typically also provide much pro bono work (without charge) in support of the bestowing consul and the citizens of the country represented by the consul.
As career consul, honorary consul or honorary vice-consul, you possess the unique power to bestow the title of Consular Emissary on your trusted confidants. This title should not be taken lightly, as these individuals may be considered Members of the Consular Post as defined in the Vienna Conventions on Consular Relations of 1963, Article 1, Section 1(g), depending of course upon the rules of each consulate. As such, an emissary, as an employee of a consul, may be covered by certain provisions of the Vienna Conventions when performing duties under your (consular) employ or instruction. This bestowal is therefore the ultimate consular recognition of trusted individuals.
The Chamber provides each emissary with a certificate of recognition, and the coat of arms color lapel pin. The Emissary may be commissioned, by joining the Emissary Corps, verifying passport ID, and accepting missions from you and other consuls. Or they may be non-commissioned, not joining the Order of Consular Emissaries and only enjoying the recognition you have provided.
