The Strategic Materials Advisory Council engages in grassroots advocacy campaigns to promote the reliable, long-term supply of strategic and critical materials and the technologies associated with them. The Council is committed to equitable international trade for U.S. companies and those of allied nations, while ensuring a secure and reliable industrial and technology base for U.S. national security.

The Strategic Materials Advisory Council was formed with the clear objective of responding to threats to the U.S. industrial base and the critical materials supply chain and their associated technologies.  The Council periodically convenes to discuss important issues facing industry and to develop strategic and practical solutions to catalyze change. Advocacy efforts extend beyond the Department of Defense to ensure that a whole-of-government approach is utilized to address the national security, international relations, economic, and environmental implications of this issue.
