With a strong and growing coalition in North Carolina for more than 5 years, the USGLC works to educate and engage policymakers and community leaders on why investments in development and diplomacy help keep America safe and strengthen North Carolina’s economy.

The USGLC’s North Carolina Advisory Committee brings together more than 130 business, faith, non-profit, and political leaders who understand how American global leadership matters for North Carolina. We’re also proud of North Carolina’s Veterans for Smart Power – part of a nationwide network of 30,000 veterans.
