FTZ Board Update - Outreach Events in Atlanta on May 8

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SHARE THIS UPDATE WITH OTHERS WHO MAY BE INTERESTED.

To provide training and enable discussion about the FTZ Board's new regulations, I will be hosting two outreach events in Atlanta on May 8, 2012. RSVPs are necessary for either of these events:

9:00 a.m. to noon - General training open to anyone interested in attending (including grantees) - Will cover a range of provisions of the new 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 regulatory provisions that have a direct impact on the grantee role, and enable Q & A/discussion.

There will be no charge for attendees of either of these outreach events.

The location for the events is:

Hampton Inn Atlanta-Buckhead
3398 Piedmont Road, NE
Atlanta, GA 30305

RSVPs are needed for the outreach events. To register, please e-mail your name, title, and company/organization to ftz@trade.gov or call Marsha Foust at (202) 482-2862 no later than May 3, 2012. Please specify which outreach event you would like to attend.
