Designed to inform policy leaders and opinion shapers, develop the capacity of next generation leaders, foster dialogue and cooperation on cutting-edge issues, and/or facilitate the exchange of ideas through educational exchanges, National Committee programs engage leading citizens in both the United States and China. While some programs select participants through an application process, most are not open to the general public.

In the early 1980s, the National Committee purchased shoushan (alibaster found in Fujian) stone topped by a mythological beast and commissioned a local artist in China to carve the Committee's name in Chinese into it. The resulting seal — nine traditional characters, 美中關系全國委員會, read top to bottom, right to left — quickly became the basis for the National Committee's logo.
