The ICC appointed thirty two individuals to four National Advisory Groups.  These groups will advise on the implemention of each pillar of the USA strategic framework.  The framework has four pillars: Participation, Performance, Fan and Market Development and Sustainable Foundation.

"Following a detailed public application and assessment process over recent months, we are now pleased to be able to announce the USA Cricket National Advisory Groups," Tim Anderson, Head of Global Development at ICC noted in a release. 

"Due to the significant number of applications received, it was unfortunately not possible to accommodate everyone within the advisory groups.  It is, however, felt that those chosen have relevant skills and experiences, and are also representative of the large and diverse USA cricket community," Anderson wrote.

Five members of the Local Advisory Group formed in 2015 - Brian Walters, Usman Shuja, Jim Isch - are also members of the National Advisory Groups.  

The groups will be coordinated by the ICC and may be supplemented from time to time with other individuals from the international cricket community and American sports community, including the US Olympic Committee, Anderson noted.  

 The ICC expects to make a decision regarding USACA at its June meeting in Edinburgh following which a new national governing body would be formed if the ICC is not satisfied with USACA's progress in respect of the 39 conditions that the ICC laid out for reinstatement.

The release also highlighted the role of Sustainable Foundation group, which will have an important role to play in considering the development of a future constitution for USA cricket.
