Michelle Halkerston, President & CEO of Hassett Express and an AWESOME Advisor, participated in a forum held recently in Washington, D.C. The theme of the forum, which involved leaders from the federal government, Congress, think tanks, and the private sector, was “Preparing for the Future.”
Michelle said one of the highlights was seeing Secretary Norman Mineta, former Secretary of The U.S. Department of Transportation and the U.S. Department Of Commerce, receive an Award for Special Service to the U.S.
Speakers and discussions addressed a wide range of topics, including Innovation in Logistics Technology, Operations, And Procedures; U.S. Priorities For Economic Growth, Exports, And Investment; and Homeland Security. The goal of the forum, hosted by DHL, is described as “shaping ideas, advocating policies, and empowering governmental action.”
