Rasmussen wins NASBITE Presidents Award for Outstanding Service
Jackie Rasmussen, international trade specialist with the University of Missouri Extension Business Development Program in Camdenton, has been awarded the NASBITE Presidents Award for Outstanding Service. It’s the first such award ever conferred.
“This is a huge honor for Jackie and the entire BDP program,” said Steve Devlin, BDP director. “That NASBITE chose to bestow this award on Jackie is not a surprise, frankly, because I know how talented and how hard working she is. We’re blessed to have an international trade specialist of her caliber in Camdenton.”
NASBITE is an international small business trade education group. Its mission is to advance global business practice, education and training through coordination and administration of the certified global business professional (CGBP) credential, exchange information and resources among global business education and assistance professionals and offer professional development for those engaged in global business education and assistance.
Two years ago, the NASBITE board of governors determined it was necessary to update the CGBP exam, and recruited a small group of volunteers, led by Rasmussen, to manage the rigorous process. This involved developing new questions to create an all-new exam, recruiting and training about 40 highly specialized writers; then recruiting a separate group of up to 15 reviewers to review the new questions. This was followed by intensive two-day workshops in Chicago, New York and San Antonio to review the questions and assemble the new exam.
Rasmussen previously attained CGBP certification and also serves as CGBP exam chair and council chair.
The MO SBTDC and MU Trulaske College of Business will also host NASBITE CGBP exam prep training on the University of Missouri-Columbia campus from Tuesday, Aug. 11- Thursday, Aug. 13.
