President and CEO’s Message to the Membership
April 13, 2021
I am thrilled to have the opportunity to join such a prestigious organization and very impressive staff. I look forward to learning more about ongoing AAEI initiatives that seek to “reimagine global trade.” I am already blown away by the membership’s enormous contributions to committees and ad hoc activities.
With an eye toward making AAEI the competency center for 21st Century trade, AAEI’s staff will seek to underwrite our membership’s already valuable assets.
Let us all excitedly march towards AAEI’s Annual Conference in June, where we will celebrate 100 years of “making global trade happen.” I cannot wait to meet all of you. Trade is our future.
