JA 100th anniversary recognized by Congress

The U.S. Congress recently recognized Jewelers of America 100th anniversary. Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (D-N.Y.) gave a speech congratulating JA on its 100th anniversary to the House of Representatives on Wednesday.

Maloney represents the 14th district of New York City, where JA is headquartered. The day’s events were recorded in the U.S. Congressional Record.

“Having our 100th anniversary acknowledged–and forever recorded–by Congress is an honor for Jewelers of America and our 11,000 member stores,” says JA President and CEO Matthew A. Runci. “We thank Congresswoman Maloney for her kind words.”

The Congressional Record is the daily publication of the federal government, which details the legislative proceedings of Congress.
