Your NADEC Advisory Board
The Advisory Board of the National Association of District Export Councils (NADEC) increases awareness and understanding of the importance of exports to the U.S. economy, and to reach audiences beyond local District Export Councils and government officials. The Advisory Board includes international trade leaders, such as former officers of the U.S. Department of Commerce, former U.S. ambassadors, and former chairs of NADEC.
Members and officers of the Advisory Board are appointed by the NADEC Board of Directors. Members serve for a term of four years, renewable once for a second term. The Advisory Board is not involved in the operations of NADEC, which continue to be the responsibility of the NADEC Board of Directors.
The Advisory Board convened a taskforce to prepare a white paper highlighting the strategic needs of U.S. exporters to meet the global competitive challenges of the 21st century. The purpose of this white paper is to underscore the urgent global competitive threats facing America’s export model, principally from China but also from other major competitors. Proposals contained herein recommend resource solutions and updated organizational structures required to help America retain and create more noble export jobs in America and strengthen U.S. competitiveness globally.
