National Export Award Application Period Now Open
The President's “E” Award was created to afford suitable recognition to persons, firms, or organizations which contribute significantly in the effort to increase United States exports. There are two types of “E” Awards. The President's “E” Award for Exports is awarded to a firm or organization that has made significant contributions to the increase of American exports. The President's “E” Award for Export Service is awarded to organizations that may or may not export directly, but which assist or facilitate export activities. Illinois exporters and export service companies are encouraged to apply for this national recognition. More information is available at http://export.gov/exportawards/index.asp Application deadline is January 23, 2014. Staff of the U.S. Department of Commerce Export Assistance Centers in Rockford and Chicago are available to assist Illinois firms with applications at 815.316.2380 or 312-353-9040.
