high level dialogue for a globalised world

MEMBERSHIP

Since its foundation AECA (the American European Community Association) has become increasingly recognised as a leading international forum for informed dialogue and as a high quality network for the international business, political and diplomatic communities.
AECA greatly benefits from the prestige and support of the distinguished members of both the Board of Directors and newly formed International Advisory Council . This endorsement has been of key importance in the interface between the association and its members, and the international business and
policy-making communities.
Members of the International Advisory Council are of different nationalities and bring with them a wealth of experience and expertise from their varied backgrounds as senior leaders in the business and policy-making arenas.
