According to a Moultrie News article, Deweesian Kathryn Banks has been elected to Co-Chair the South Carolina Interenational Trade Coalition. Here’s the text of the article:
Rene Dentiste Mueller, Ph.D., and Kathryn Banks of the College of Charleston’s Global Business Resource Center have been voted co-chairs of the South Carolina International Trade Coalition (SCITC) for 2010-2011.
The SCITC is the preeminent trade organization in South Carolina and is comprised of the state’s major trade entities, including the US Export Assistance Center/US Commercial Service, the South Carolina Department of Commerce, the Export Consortium, the SC Department of Agriculture, the SC World Trade Center, the District Export Council, and the SC Forestry Commission.
The principal goal of the SCITC’s outreach efforts is to educate constituents on the wealth of global commerce opportunities that exist for South Carolina companies.
SCITC member entities work together to ensure that South Carolina companies have access to the best resources to meet their importing and exporting needs.
For its part, the Global Business Resource Center fosters global commerce education by connecting College of Charleston students and faculty with the South Carolina business community through education, outreach and research programs.
