WASHINGTON – Today, the Export-Import Bank of the United States (EXIM) opened the application period for the 2023-2024 Advisory Committee, Sub-Saharan Africa Advisory Committee, Council on Climate, Council on China Competition, Council on Small Business and Council on Advancing Women in Business. The application period begins today and will remain open through April 28.

“The work and recommendations of our advisory committees and councils are critical components of EXIM’s operations,” said EXIM President and Chair Reta Jo Lewis. “Members are selected for their expertise in their respective fields and the knowledge they bring to EXIM is an invaluable tool as we continue working to support U.S. exporters and American jobs.”

EXIM’s Advisory Committee provides guidance to EXIM on the agency’s overall policies and programs, particularly on competitive financing to support American jobs through exports. The committee’s 17 members represent small business, environment, production, commerce, finance, agriculture, labor, services, state government, and the textile industry.

The Sub-Saharan Africa Advisory Committee provides advice on strengthening and expanding EXIM financing support for U.S. manufactured goods and services in sub-Saharan Africa. The 11 committee members represent small business, banking, finance, trade promotion, and commerce.

The Council on Climate advises how EXIM can further support U.S. exporters and American jobs in clean energy and meet congressional mandates to support and promote environmentally beneficial renewable energy, energy efficiency and energy storage exports.

The Council on China Competition offers guidance on advancing the comparative leadership of the United States with respect to China and supporting U.S. innovation and employment through competitive export finance.

The Council on Small Business provides recommendations to help more American small business exporters find new markets, achieve more sales, and lower the risk of selling internationally.

The Council on Advancing Women in Business advises how EXIM can reach more women business leaders and owners and better consider equity goals set in the agency’s strategy.

Candidates wishing to be considered for membership on any committee or council must complete an online questionnaire and submit a biography, headshot, and letter of interest demonstrating relevant knowledge, experience, and qualifications to advisory@exim.gov by 5:30 PM EDT on April 28, 2023.
