The holiday season is a nostalgic time for a lot of us: memories of family traditions, visions of sugar plum fairies, nonstop Warm 106.9 FM on the car radio…it’s easy to get emotional. So, maybe you’ll forgive me a little extra holiday emotion when I say “Holy $@!#@, WCIT has had a productive year!!!”

It’s always awkward to be tooting your own horn (even if it’s a yuletide horn), but don’t just take my word for it. From policy advocacy and events to statewide outreach and communication efforts, WCIT has been actively engaged in efforts to increase Washington’s international competitiveness and drive trade and job growth in our state. And we have the list of accomplishments to prove it:




The staff of WCIT would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who helped make 2013 such a productive year for WCIT. Thank you to our members, event sponsors, Board, partner organizations, event attendees and speakers, and everyone who signed letters and contacted our Congressional delegation to express your support of pro-trade policies that promote economic growth in Washington state and increase our international competitiveness. We couldn’t do it without you, and we look forward to doing it again with you in 2014.
