Accepting the award for the International Center and for Lafayette Consolidated Government were Dave Domingue, the Center’s Operations Coordinator, and Lafayette Mayor-President Joel Robideaux,.

The award highlights continued export promotion efforts during the past four years.

The center was one of only five presented with the President’s “E” Star Award, one of only two for export service, the only honoree from Louisiana, and the only local government entity in the entire country to be selected out of the 32 U.S. companies and organizations from across the country
