LWV Meetup: Foreign Trade Agreements & Tariffs

LWV Saratoga member, Mary Estelle Ryckman, will lead this informative session . She will offer background on how US trade policy is made and lead a lively discussion on the recent trade actions taken by the new Administration and reactions from our trading partners.

What does it all mean and how might it affect the regional and NY State economies?

Ms. Ryckman is a former U.S. trade negotiator who spent thirty years shaping global trade and investment policy. During her career at the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR), she held numerous positions, including Senior Policy Advisor, Assistant U.S. Trade Representative for Trade and Development, and Deputy Assistant U.S. Trade Representative for Canada.

Meetups are a way for us to come together to explore, understand and advocate for issues that matter to us.
