With a strong and growing coalition in Missouri, the USGLC works to educate and engage policymakers and community leaders on why investments in development and diplomacy help keep America safe and strengthen Missouri’s economy.

The USGLC’s Missouri Advisory Committee brings together more than 60 business, faith, non-profit, and political leaders who understand how American global leadership matters for Missouri. We’re also proud of Missouri’s Veterans for Smart Power – part of a nationwide network of 30,000 veterans.
