District Export Councils (DECs) are organizations of leaders from the local business community, appointed by the Secretary of Commerce, whose knowledge of international business provides a source of professional advice for local firms. For 30 years, DECs have served the United States by assisting companies in their local communities export, thus promoting our country's economic growth and creating new and higher-paying jobs for their communities. Closely affiliated with the Commerce Department's U.S. Export Assistance Centers, the 58 DECs combine the energies of nearly 1,500 exporters and export service providers who support the U.S. Government's export promotion efforts throughout the country. DEC leaders and members volunteer their time to participate in numerous trade promotion activities. They also supply specialized expertise to small and medium sized businesses that are interested in exporting.
