It gives me great pleasure to tell our membership that a letter to the editor of American Shipper that our Chairwoman of the Board Pam Brown co-wrote along with Brian Waters was published in this month's issue of American Shipper.
We are working very hard with our returning men and women of the armed services to get them stable, well-paying careers when they return to civilian life. Many of these people have a background in military traffic management, and what they have done moving material in and out of theatres is really no different than moving commercial cargo around the world.
We are proud of the work that we have done in this area. Last year, the NCBFAA's Educational Institute collaborated with the Army Transportation Institute to lay the groundwork for a program that saw soldiers enrolling in the Certified Export Specialist courses to earn their CES designations.
Read the whole letter here, and know that we are thankful for this opportunity to give something back to such a dedicated and willing group of people.
Thanks to Pam and Brian for taking the time to write this letter.
