The Defense and Aerospace Council shapes the legal, policy, andprocedural practices of the U.S. and foreign governments that challenge U.S. industry’s continued success at home and abroad.

Working with the National Security Council, Congress, Pentagon, State Department, Commerce Department, think tanks, associations and local chambers of commerce, DAC helps members influence investments by the U.S. government and champions continued federal defense and aerospace investments for the post-pandemic global security environment. By leveraging our network of foreign officials and resources in the Chamber’s International Affairs Division, we continue supporting industry in their efforts to capture greater market share abroad.

DAC maintains unparalleled access to current and former policy makers, experts, and influential thought leaders across the global Defense and Aerospace industrial complex, including foreign government officials. Personal and professional long-standing relationships with members of the current Administration and foreign governments have enabled DAC to provide business development-shaping intelligence to our members in real time. In addition to the support and guidance offered by DAC’s esteemed Advisory Board and network, DAC has several ongoing programs within the inter-agency that provide exclusive and formidable opportunities to shape policy on behalf of its members.
