Congratulations on your appointment to the Illinois District Export Council (DEC).
The U.S. Department of Commerce is pleased to have you on board. Your activities as a DEC member will help U.S. business people meet their international sales objectives and assist the President in advancing our national export objectives.
The term in which you are now serving comes at a time when Commerce is placing increased emphasis on the nationwide DEC network to help increase U.S. exports. DEC members provide a key link between public and private sector trade development groups.
Welcome to the team. The entire U.S. and Foreign Commercial Service staff looks forward to working with you.
