FTF Joins the the Overseas Advisory Council (OSAC)
FTF is happy to announce that our application to join OSAC has been approved and we are now a member of the OSAC network. This will help us as we make our way into some pretty rough waters overseas. Here's more on OSAC: The Overseas Security Advisory Council (OSAC) was created in 1985 under the Federal Advisory Committee Act to promote security cooperation between American private sector interests worldwide and the U.S. Department of State.
The OSAC "Council" is comprised of 34 private and public sector member organizations that represent specific industries or agencies operating abroad. The member organizations designate representatives to serve on the Overseas Security Advisory Council to provide direction and guidance to develop programs that most benefit the U.S. private sector overseas. The Department of State's Bureau of Diplomatic Security (DS) implemented the following recommendations from OSAC: to create the OSAC website, to create a Country Council Program, and to develop a Research and Information Support Center (RISC). A primary goal of OSAC is to develop an effective security communication network, consequently, OSAC invited all U.S. businesses, academia, faith-based groups, and non-governmental organizations to become constituents.
Little by little as we try and transform ourselves by lending our lives and our time to others.
