Captain of Industry
June 26, 2017
Dear Association Members:
I want to thank the officers, board of directors, and members of the Association for presenting me with this award. I have been Customs counsel to the Association for over 20 years and it is nice to know that the Association appreciates the efforts that I and my law firm have been able to put forth for the group. As I explained at the presentation boat ride, which is always lot’s of fun, this position provides a great learning experience for all of us at GDLSK as it exposes us to another side of the importing/exporting business which we would otherwise not see. I think that together we have been able to weigh in on some very important issues, and we have made good progress on behalf of the industry. Over the years, I have found that the members of the Association have been truly blessed to have officers and directors who have devoted so much of their own time to addressing issues that are critical to the members. It has been our privilege to working with the group and we look forward to many more years of keeping this partnership going. I also recognize that the first award was presented to Stu Hauser who has done so much for this Association and I can only try to measure up to his contribution. Thanks again—I look forward to seeing you all in the fall. "Read About Award Recipient Robert Silverman"
