With a strong and growing coalition in North Dakota 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 Dakota’s economy.

The USGLC’s North Dakota Advisory Committee brings together more than 50 business, faith, non-profit, and political leaders who understand how American global leadership matters for North Dakota. We’re also proud of North Dakota’s Veterans for Smart Power – part of a nationwide network of 30,000 veterans.
