“Melzie’s experience in the supply chain industry will be an important resource to me and to the work of the ACSCC as it advises me on the development and administration of programs and policies to strengthen the competitiveness of US supply chains,” Pritzker said.
“President Obama and I have highlighted on various occasions how reducing inefficiencies and barriers in the U.S. supply chain infrastructure is critical to the success of making our U.S. companies more competitive and America’s economic growth more sustainable.”
In addition to the NCBFAA, Wilson is also a member of the Customs and Border Protection Trade Support Network (TSN), the Customs Electronic Systems Action Committee (CESAC) and the Agriculture Transportation Coalition (AgTC).
She is a Licensed Customs Broker, a Certified Customs Specialist and a Certified Export Specialist.
