WHY BRAZIL ?
Connections – The business owners and operators
you meet through the Council can be your
clients and open doors to other companies to
help grow your business.
Business advocates – Your ability to influence
public policy on common business problems
becomes greater as more voices are added
to advocate on behalf of businesses like yours.
Credibility –Membership in an American Council
is considered a must by the international public
and other businesses for your business to be
taken seriously and be considered a viable player

walking on the same path as you.
Intelligence – You don’t have time to stay on
top of all the local, regional, international,
and state issues which could impact your
business, but that’s at the heart of what
we do. We keep you informed so that
you can concentrate on growing your business.
Training – Whether it is a lunch and learn or a
seminar on improving your company’s
marketing, the Council hosts countless
programs to help you increase your skills in all
aspects of your business.
Involvement – Consumers and business owners
and operators want to do business with someone
who is vested in their community.
Marketing – What better way to introduce your
business to potential worldwide clients than

you are seen by the international public
and other business owners and operators
as an expert in your field.
Giving back –When you give back to your
community you’re helping others, and that helps
the business community become stronger.
When the business community is vibrant and
strong, the local economy is stronger, and that
is good for all businesses that depend on
consumers’ ability to spend in the local
