FTZ Board Update: Grantee Outreach Event in Miami, FL on Sept. 12

To provide training to officials of grantee organizations, I will be hosting an outreach event in Miami, Florida, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on September 12, 2013 (the day after an industry event taking place September 8 - 11 in Miami). There is no charge for the outreach event, but RSVPs are required.

The outreach event will focus on FTZ regulatory provisions that have a direct impact on the grantee role (including public utility and uniform treatment). However, the schedule should allow for Q & A and discussion on any topics that grantees want to raise.

The updated event location (still within the Port of Miami complex):

5th Floor Conference Room
PortMiami Administration Building
1015 N. America Way
Miami, FL 33132

Parking is in the lot across the street, the entrance for which is just as you pass under the port bridge. As a guest of the Port of Miami for the grantee event, you do not have to pay the ordinary $7 parking fee.

RSVPs are needed for the outreach event. To register, please e-mail ftz@trade.gov or call Marsha Foust at (202) 482-2862 no later than September 10, 2013. Your RSVP should include your name, your title, and the name of the grantee organization of which you are an official. (Registration is limited to officials of grantee organizations.)

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