This award recognizes the work that the CITD has done over the past two decades, helping thousands of companies each year enter or expand their ability to conduct international trade. As Chancellor Brice W. Harris said, "We know that helping businesses get their products to foreign markets means providing them with training and access to funds. I believe we provide that service better than anyone."
The presidential "E" Award was created by President John F. Kennedy in December, 1961 in order to recognize persons, firms, and organizations engaged in the marketing of products who make significant contributions to the expansion of the export trade of the United States. This prestigious award is the highest level of U.S. government recognition any American entity may receive for supporting export activity.
