DEC - Export Business Assistance For Ohio and N Kentucky Companies

The Ohio and Northern Kentucky District Export Councils created this website to give export companies an all-inclusive resource for international trade-related events in the Ohio and Northern Kentucky regions. This calendar contains training opportunities, geo-political events, and networking opportunities for not only Ohio companies, but those in the Northern Kentucky region, as well. We welcome you to our website and encourage your participation in the listed events.

In addition, DECs play a major role in the planning and coordination of export activities for their communities. As a lead organization serving the international business community, DECs have the capacity to facilitate development of an effective export assistance network and can assist in coordinating the activities of trade assistance partners to leverage available resources. DECs also serve as a communications link between the business community and the U.S. & Foreign Commercial Service, and support the export expansion activities of the U.S. Commerce Department in a variety of ways within their communities.

While DECs are a creation of the U.S. Government and individual DEC members receive governmental appointments.  Neither DECs nor DEC members represent the U.S. Government in their capacity as DECs or as DEC members, respectively.

While DECs and individual DEC members engage in legislative advocacy and outreach regarding trade issues, DEC members are prohibited from being registered lobbyists and neither DECs nor DEC members engage in any activity which requires lobbying registration.
