We are looking for stories about federal agencies, or multi-agency
partnerships, that are creating electronic export assistance centers.
These stories can be short, as in a "byte" of about 150 words, or they can

quotes from customers who experience the service electronically and quotes

Include a contact person with phone number and email address. Send
your stories to firstname.lastname@example.org
or email@example.com. If you
need more information, call Pat Wood, National Partnership for
