2013 Annual Spring Event in Washington, DC

Over 200 New England Council members gathered in our nation’s capital on March 20 & 21 for our Annual Spring Event, making it one of the largest and most successful events to date.

  • Administrator Karen Mills, U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA)
  • Ambassador Demetrius Marantis, Acting U.S. Trade Representative
  • Greg Nelson, Chief of Staff, National Economic Council
  • Sol Ross, Director of Business Outreach, U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS)

Ed Markey, the dean of the delegation, was on hand to introduce his new colleagues.
