In a few moments, we're going to ask you to chip in $10 to become an official member of our grassroots movement.

But first, here’s what you should know:

  1. State Republicans across the country are attacking reproductive rights, restricting voting rights, and targeting the LGBTQ+ community.
  2. The GOP is pouring money into the state-level ballot – they’ve spent nearly $5 million this cycle!
  3. And Trump is rallying his base in key battleground states to vote down the ballot for his GOP cronies in this year’s midterm elections.

Defending our democracy from a GOP power-grab starts with early action – and with YOU making a commitment to support state Democrats this November by activating your official DLCC membership.

So for a limited time, we’re sending our new members their very own exclusive membership card, a symbol of their dedication to building a more progressive future in the states.

Will you commit to building progress at the state level by activating your official DLCC membership today with a gift of $10 or more? We’ll even send you an exclusive membership card (see below!) >>

As one of our dedicated grassroots supporters, you understand how critical it is that we elect state Democrats this November.

As Trump parades around the country endorsing corrupt Republican state legislative candidates in key states, we’re working around the clock to ensure our state Democrats have the resources they need to fight back.

Our official members are the driving force behind our grassroots movement – with each donation for one of our exclusive member cards, our momentum grows stronger.

With just 4,509 exclusive cards left, we’re asking you one last time: Will you chip in $10 today to claim your exclusive DLCC membership card?

Brazil Summit Webinar
Tuesday, April 19th
9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
(Eastern Time - U.S. and Canada)
The Brazil Summit is one of the most important events in the Chamber’s annual calendar. The discussion provided by the conference this year will highlight important issues that will play a major role in helping Brazil to overcome the challenges it faces today.
As we advance in Brazil’s 2022 election year, hope for progress on the policy front fades. In fact, further electioneering deterioration is to be expected, as the current fracas over the leadership of Petrobras illustrates. Growth in 2022 will be mediocre, near-zero—as it has been, on average, over the last decade. And the new administration in 2023 is likely to face an uphill battle to keep the economy from a recession. The international backdrop has deteriorated with Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, as well as with the increase in inflation in the United States and Europe. Economic authorities face these external developments – although some of them work in Brazil’s favor, such as higher commodity prices – as well as internal developments. The Central Bank of Brazil anticipated the increase in inflation and started tightening monetary policy before any other major central bank. Contractionary monetary policy is already binding for growth, while inflation has peaked but stays high. Brazil’s fiscal performance – boosted by inflation – has outperformed across emerging markets and developed markets, but deep structural problems and relentless pressure on spending remain. How will politics and policies shape up in coming years to reap (or not) the benefits of yet another substantial boost from commodities?

The Chamber brings together BNDES President Gustavo Montezano; the new representative of the Ministry of the Economy in Washington, DC Carlos da Costa; and macroeconomic, political, and M&A experts to share their views on Brazil’s prospects.
Please join us for this timely and informative annual webinar conference.

Tribute to H.E. Eduardo Refinetti Guardia

(January 19, 1966 – April 11, 2022)


On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Brazilian-American Chamber of Commerce, Inc., we regretfully inform you of the passing, on April 11, 2022 at the age of 56, of Eduardo Refinetti Guardia, Partner of BTG Pactual (2019-22), former Minister of Finance of Brazil (2018), and longtime supporter of the Chamber.  Mr. Guardia participated in many Chamber programs and, as Minister of Finance, delivered the keynote address at the Chamber’s 2018 Brazil Summit.

With a Ph.D. in Economics from Universidade de São Paulo, Mr. Guardia began his career as a teacher at Pontifícia Universidade Católica de São Paulo.  In the 1990s / 2000s, he served as Secretary of Finance of the Government of the State of São Paulo.  He also held the positions of Head of the Economic Advisory to the Deputy Secretary of the Secretariat of Finance; Advisor to the Secretary of Planning; and Researcher of the Fiscal Area of the Public Sector Economics Institute of the Foundation for Administrative Development (IESP / FUNDAP) of São Paulo.

In early 2002, Mr. Guardia was appointed Assistant Secretary of the National Treasury and, in May of that year, was appointed Secretary.  He also served as Assistant Secretary for Economic Policy at the Ministry of Finance; Assistant Secretary for the Secretariat for Economic Policy; and Advisor to the Minister of Planning.

From 2010-16, Mr. Guardia served as Executive Director of B3 Products (formerly BM&FBOVESPA).  In June 2016, he was appointed Executive Secretary for Finance (2016-18).  He also assumed the role of Chairman of Banco do Brasil, a position he held until 2017.

Mr. Guardia was known for his rigidity in expenditure control and fiscal adjustment policies to enable reform.  He was a key backer of Brazil’s pension reform bill (passed in 2019), seen by investors as a massive step up in putting Brazil’s public accounts on a sustainable path.

At BTG, he was responsible for the bank’s asset management unit.  He helped implement a strategy for BTG to purchase minority stakes in other asset management firms, and helped expand BTG’s asset management products into alternative assets.

More information on Mr. Guardia’s life and career can be found below.
