Illinois

With a strong and growing coalition in Illinois 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 Illinois’s economy.

The USGLC’s Illinois Advisory Committee brings together more than 130 business, faith, non-profit, and political leaders who understand how American global leadership matters for Illinois. We’re also proud of Illinois’s Veterans for Smart Power – part of a nationwide network of 30,000 veterans.
