Mr. HUDSON. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to commemorate the successful
tenure of Mr. Jeffrey Hay as President of the British-American Business
Council of North Carolina (BABC-NC). For the past three years, Mr. Hay
has provided exceptional leadership at the BABC-NC that has resulted in
the reemergence of the BABC-NC as a premier chapter in the BABC and has
strengthened the business relationship between North Carolina and the
The BABC is a transatlantic business network designed to give companies and individuals access to partner organizations, both domestic and foreign, in order to strengthen and improve their own businesses. As President of the BABC-NC, Mr. Hay is responsible for ensuring North Carolina businesses and individuals reap the full rewards of being BABC members and expand their presence in North Carolina and the United Kingdom. As a result of his efforts, the BABC- NC has been able to reach more businesses in the state, greatly impacting our state's economy.
In addition to his business-related work within the BABC-NC, Mr. Hay's impact on our community can also be seen through his efforts to help our state's future business leaders. Mr. Hay was instrumental in raising the necessary funds to continue the annual British Studies Summer Program (BSSP), a program that sends a select group of students from the Charlotte area on a two-week travel and study experience to the United Kingdom. This program allows students to gain valuable educational and life experiences which will have a lasting impact on their careers. It is with this focus on enriching the lives of others, coupled with his keen legal and business insights, which made Mr. Hay so successful during his tenure as President of the BABC-NC.
Mr. Speaker, please join me in congratulating Mr. Jeffrey Hay for his successful tenure as President of the British-American Business Council of North Carolina, and thanking him for his dedication to strengthening businesses across the state of North Carolina.
