As part of our role as the American affiliate of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), USCIB promotes awareness of, and membership in, ICC’s World Chambers Federation (WCF), the preeminent body for chambers of commerce around the world.
WCF provides a platform for chambers to share best practices, join with their corporate brethren and international organizations on important global initiatives, and impact public policy around the world. With the World Customs Organization, it manages the worldwide ATA Carnet system, and it organizes the bienennial World Chambers Congresses that have become a fixture on the ICC calendar and a key gathering of the chamber community worldwide.
WCF is governed by a General Council composed of chamber executives from around the world. The current WCF General Council’s term ends this December, and ICC has solicited nominations for candidates from the United States. USCIB is working with a member association, American Chamber of Commerce Executives – whose president and CEO, Mick Fleming, currently serves as a vice chair of WCF – in this regard. Member nominations of suitable candidates may be made by contacting Cynthia Duncan (firstname.lastname@example.org), USCIB’s senior vice president for trade services, by September 19.
