Alabama District Export Council

strice Export Council Logo

The Alabama District Export Council (DEC) is a volunteer organization drawn from Alabama State businesses, governmental agencies and non-profits. The members have in-depth knowledge and experience in international business and are available as a unique source of professional advice to help other Alabama firms compete and win business in the international marketplace. The Alabama DEC works closely with the Birmingham U.S. Export Assistance Center of the U.S. Department of Commerce's Commercial Service to accomplish its mission through:

  • Counseling, educating and mentoring local businesses;
  • Identifying key issues affecting U.S. and Washington industry competitiveness in the global marketplace;
  • Enhancing the efforts of the Birmingham US Export Assistance Center.

Established in 1973 by the President and the Secretary of Commerce, District Export Councils are mandated to support the export expansion activities of the U.S. Department of Commerce and serve as a link between the business community and U.S. Export Assistance Centers (USEAC) across the United States.
