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

The USGLC’s Indiana Advisory Committee brings together more than 140 business, faith, non-profit, and political leaders who understand how American global leadership matters for Indiana. We’re also proud of Indiana’s Veterans for Smart Power – part of a nationwide network of 30,000 veterans.
