One of the signature events of the Washington Council on International Trade was always the "Senators Conference." So called because, well, it always featured both of Washington state's U.S. Senators at a conference talking about international trade policy. For example - as a fun, historical momento - here's Senator Murray's remarks at the 2001 event (the same year the Mariners won 116 games...coincidence?). It's always been the only opportunity for Washington businesses and organizations to gather with their DC delegation to discuss the trade policy issues of the day. And I'm excited that one of the first things I'm going to do in my new tenure is to bring the conference back...renamed the Washington Trade Conference to reflect the fact that it will feature not only our Senators but the rest of our Congressional electeds who all do so much to forward the cause of international trade on behalf of our state. A save the date will be going out soon for the event, which will take place in November. But if we're going to do the conference again this year, we'll need a theme. And I could use your help figuring out what it should be.
