2018  Visionary Leadership Award Presentation

One of the evening’s highlights came when Bilateral  Chamber CEO Aida Araissi, along with several Bilateral Advisory Board Members, presented The Honorable Sylvester Turner, Mayor of Houston with the Chamber’s 2018 Visionary Leadership Award.

2018 Good Will Ambassador Award Presentation

The 2018 Goodwill Ambassador Award honoree was The Honorable Douglas A. Silliman, currently serving as the U.S. Ambassador to the Republic of Iraq. 

Unfortunately, Ambassador Silliman was called back to post prior to Monday’s program. Since he was unable to accept the award personally, he asked that The Honorable Timmy Davis, Consul General for the U.S. Consulate in Basrah accept on his behalf.
