FTZ Board Update - Free 2/24 webinar for Operators on using OFIS to submit annual reports


As mentioned in previous updates, complete training videos and tutorials on the use of the Online FTZ Information System (OFIS) are now available on the FTZ Board's website - www.trade.gov/ftz - these materials are currently accessible via the "What's New" box.

To supplement the videos and tutorials, we will also be holding a free webinar this Friday, February 24, 2012 at 1:00 pm EST designed for operators. The webinar content will be specific to operators' filling out and submitting their annual report to the grantee using OFIS. (NOTE: A free webinar for grantees will also be announced soon, and will focus on grantees' using OFIS to submit their reports to the FTZ Board.)

RSVPs are required for this Friday's webinar. Please RSVP to ftz@trade.gov by the end of Thursday, February 23. Each RSVP should include the individual's name and e-mail address. Prior to the webinar, participants will receive an e-mail with the call-in number and passcode to be used to access the webinar.
