The Export-Import Bank of the United States is accepting nominations for its Advisory Committee as well as its Sub-Saharan Africa Advisory Committee. The nomination period will be open through July 24.

Advisory Committee. The congressionally-established Advisory Committee holds quarterly meetings in which its primary task is to advise the Bank concerning its policy and programs, in particular on the extent to which the Bank is meeting its mandate to provide competitive financing that equips U.S. exporters to compete for business in the global marketplace. Pending approval by Ex-Im’s board of directors, the first meeting of the 2019 Advisory Committee is scheduled to be held in September.

Sub-Saharan Africa Advisory Committee. The congressionally-established Sub-Saharan Africa Advisory Committee holds biannual meetings in which its primary task is to advise the Bank concerning its policy and programs, in particular on the extent to which the Bank is supporting the expansion of its financial commitments in sub-Saharan Africa under its loan, guarantee, and insurance programs. Pending approval by Ex-Im’s board of directors, the first meeting of the 2019 Sub-Saharan Africa Advisory Committee is scheduled to be held in October.
