Event date/time: October 11 In-Person from 11:30 AM – 2:00 PM (virtual starts at 12.30 pm and runs  until 2.00 pm) 

Think about your business and ask – who is responsible for trade compliance? The answer is: Every employee in every division. 

Failure to create a robust plan and foster a compliance culture can result in fines, penalties, seized shipments and jail time. If your plan is leaning towards complacency – this is the perfect event to attend. 

Join MITA at this event on October 11 and learn: 

  • How to create a trade compliance plan that identifies the roles of every division of your organization and can garner the support of the executive team 
  • What companies get wrong about trade compliance 
  • How to incorporate key elements like training and audit prep 
  • How to implement clearly defined records retention protocols (for Finance, HR, Sales, Logistics, Legal etc.) for all export and import related activities

The information shared will be applicable to all sizes of organizations for small-to-midsized companies to multi-nationals.
