National Committees

The founding of INCAE in the 60s was led by an association of Central American businessmen, headed by Francisco de Sola. From this association the National Committees of INCAE were subsequently born, guiding and supporting bodies for the growth and development of the institution in each of the six founding countries. In 1982, Ecuador was incorporated as the seventh member country of INCAE.

Currently, the National Committees contribute to increasing INCAE's impact in each of the countries in which they serve, through:

  • Representation of the feelings of each member country of INCAE, through the participation of its president in the Board of Directors.
  • Advice on the relevance of INCAE programs to respond to the needs of each country.
  • Identification of areas in which INCAE can support the development of a member country.
  • Promotion of public interest in INCAE programs and activities.
  • Support to the institution in the approach and involvement of its graduates.
  • Accompaniment to the institution in the fundraising process.

INCAE maintains its National Committees in: Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Panama.
