The Business Council is a voluntary association of business leaders whose members meet several times a year for the free exchange of ideas both among themselves and with thought leaders from many sectors. In its most fundamental form, the Council seeks to foster understanding through discussion. It promotes learning, best practice sharing and networking by its members with a view to making a contribution to our society, the global economy and to business generally. Since its founding more than 75 years ago, The Business Council membership has consisted of a group of current or former chief executive officers from a broad range of companies. All major industries are represented among the members of The Business Council. Because schedule demands on senior business executives are extensive, the Council provides an especially valuable opportunity to discuss major subjects in a broader ranging forum than is normally available in the course of business activities. As part of its process, the Council invites leaders in government, politics, academia, science, medicine, technology and other sectors to address the Council and to participate in its discussions. Council members hope that these discussions result in better understanding by their invited guests as well as by the members themselves. Today, the Council meets three times a year in a collegial atmosphere to share and explore ideas.As a gathering of peers from many fields, the Council is entirely an educational and deliberative forum. It never takes positions as an organization and does not advocate any policy or course of action. Individual members sometimes do present their own views in public discussions. But they do so as individuals, rather than as representatives of the Council.

Host Hotels & Resorts, Inc. is a premier lodging real estate company. We own high quality lodging assets in prime urban, airport and resort/convention locations. Creating value through aggressive asset management and disciplined capital allocation to generate superior performance, we endeavor to maximize shareholders’ returns through a combination of dividends, growth in funds from operations and increasing asset value. Our strategy to accomplish this mission includes: acquiring existing luxury and upper upscale full-service hotels as market conditions permit, including hotels operated by leading management companies which satisfy our investment criteria such as Marriott, Ritz-Carlton, Four Seasons, Hyatt, Hilton, W, Westin, Sheraton and Fairmont. Such acquisitions may be completed in various ways including transactions involving entities in which we are already a partner, public and private portfolio transactions, single asset transactions, and entering into joint ventures; maximizing the value of our existing portfolio through aggressive asset management. We will work with the managers of our hotels to reduce operating costs and increase revenues, as well as conducting selective capital improvements and expansions designed to improve operations; developing new luxury and upper upscale full-service hotels operated by leading management companies; employing transaction structures which mitigate our risk; and recycling capital through opportunistic asset dispositions and selective disposal of non-core assets, including older assets with significant capital needs, assets that are at a competitive risk given potential new supply, or assets in slower-growth markets. We believe Host Hotels & Resorts, Inc. has the best assets, best management and best operators in the industry. Today, our portfolio consists of luxury and upper upscale hotels in difficult to duplicate downtown and resort locations. We continually strive to make the best better, investing in maintenance and property enhancements to meet the needs of our guests and drive future revenue growth. We are confident we can achieve our goal to be the premier lodging real estate company. We look forward to delivering on that commitment in the months and years to come

The President's Export Council ("the Council") was first created by Executive Order on December 20, 1973. Originally, the Council consisted of only private sector members drawn from business and industry, mostly CEO's of major U.S. companies. Eight of the members were chosen "without regard to geographic considerations." Twelve members were selected to provide appropriate regional representation. The Council advised the President on matters relating to export trade and report this advice to him through the Secretary of Commerce. Members served "at the pleasure of the President." Thus, a change in Administrations would bring a change in the Council. The Council's activities and operations were subject to the Federal Advisory Committee Act. Since its inception, the Council's mission has remained fundamentally unchanged: it advises the President through the Secretary on export enhancement and works with industry encouraging U.S. companies to increase exports and enter new markets. Its members serve at the pleasure of the President and its activities are subject to the Federal Advisory Committee Act. On the other hand, changes to the Council's structure have elevated and expanded its voice in matters of export trade.
