CalChamber Wins President's Export Award
The California Chamber of Commerce has received the President’s “Excellence for Export Service Award,” the nation’s highest award to honor U.S. exporters.
U.S. Commerce Secretary Gary Locke presented the award to CalChamber Vice President of International Affairs Susanne Stirling in an afternoon ceremony in Washington, D.C. on November 5.
President John. F. Kennedy created the award via executive order in 1961 to recognize persons, firms or organizations that contribute significantly to expanding U.S. exports.
Creation of the award acknowledges that employment levels throughout the country, the strength of the national
economy and the nation’s capacity to carry out its international responsibilities can be increased
substantially by establishing foreign markets for
U.S. products and that it is in the national interest to
promote and expand the export trade of the United States.
