Port of Vancouver USA Wins Outreach Award

The Port of Vancouver USA has earned the Washington Public Ports Association’s Community Outreach Award for its annual Lecture Series.

The award, which the port accepted earlier this month in Spokane, Wash., recognizes a port effort or project that engages the residents of the community in a positive way.

“The Lecture Series has been an incredible opportunity to reach out to, and connect with the community in a way we never have before,” said CEO Julianna Marler. “We are grateful to the many organizations and individuals that dedicated their time and expertise to make these lectures happen.”

Since launching in 2017, the series has drawn over 1,000 visitors, and included topics such as “The Mighty Columbia – Our Working River,” “Railroading 101,” and “Great Western Malting – Tradition and Innovation in Malting.”
