After the LWC became the Lutheran World Federation in 1947, the NLC's Executive Committee served as the U.S.A. National Committee of the Lutheran World Federation (USANC).

When in 1966, the NLC was succeeded by the Lutheran Council in the U.S.A., the USANC became a separate standing organization. In 1977, the USANC was reorganized as Lutheran World Ministries (LWM). In 1987, LWM was terminated and USANC activities transferred to the newly established Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
