FTZ Board Outreach Events on Feb. 13 in Washington

The FTZ Board will be holding outreach events in Washington, DC on February 13, 2013. See below for RSVP information. There is no charge for the outreach events, which are scheduled for the day after a FTZ-related industry seminar in Washington. (Note: We will also be sending an announcement soon about no-cost webinars we plan to hold in 2013 on a range of topics of interest to the FTZ community.)

The details of the two events on February 13 are:

9:00 a.m. to noon - General training open to anyone interested in attending (including grantees) - Will cover submission of the annual report, provisions of the 2012 regulations, plus enable Q & A/discussion.

1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. - Outreach session for officials of grantee organizations - Will focus on the grantee's submission of the annual report, regulatory provisions that have a direct impact on the grantee role (including zone schedule requirements), and enable Q & A/discussion.

The events will be held at the U.S. Department of Commerce building, located at 1401 Constitution Ave., NW, Washington, DC 20230. Directions to the building can be found here:

As noted above, RSVPs are required for either outreach event. To register, please e-mail or call Marsha Foust at (202) 482-2862 no later than February 8, 2012. Each RSVP should include the individual's name and title (plus, for the grantee event, the grantee organization/public agency of which the event attendee is an official).

As always, do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have.
