There are four Texas District Export Councils in Texas, all under a nationwide network of DECs which make a significant contribution to America's international competitiveness. It is a diverse group of volunteer international trade professionals who meet for plenary sessions addressing international issues and awareness. Members are exporters of manufactured products and services, providers of export support services (accounting, finance, legal, transportation, etc.) academia, and leaders of non-profit organizations of state and local government. The majority are from the private sector and their knowledge of international business provides a source of professional advice to exporters and to the entire international trade community in Texas, one of the nation's leading exporting states.
