Producing yet another successful World Trade Week event, completing a successful first Foreign Direct Investment mission to the U.K. and launching a new Global Resources microsite is just the beginning for this powerhouse committee.

Now it is time to think ahead, re-calibrate our mission and develop new objectives for this next Fiscal Year.

So, what’s in store?

  • We need you to help us decide what’s next, why and what we can expect
  • Tell us how we can best optimize the assets and membership of this committee to produce the next set of outcomes.
  • Chart the course for the new fiscal year:
    • Review EVC table work topics and results
    • Establish priorities
    • Get aboard your favorite Task Force.
