Bellingham Manager Honored by Surrey, BC

The Port of Bellingham’s Economic Development Program Manager John Michener has been selected and confirmed as an honorary director on the Surrey, British Columbia, Board of Trade’s Board of Directors, the port announced earlier this month. It marks the first time an American citizen has served on the board in this role. The port has been a member of the board in an effort to foster relationships with its Canadian border since 2014.

The Surrey Board of Trade, which represents an estimated 6,000 members, offers economic opportunity, workplace development and education, international trade, government advocacy, and business connections to businesses and organizations.
