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

The USGLC’s South Carolina Advisory Committee brings together more than 160 business, faith, non-profit, and political leaders who understand how American global leadership matters for South Carolina. We’re also proud of South Carolina’s Veterans for Smart Power – part of a nationwide network of 30,000 veterans.
