To provide training and enable discussion about the FTZ Board's new regulations, we are planning a series of free training/outreach events across the country. In addition to the recent events in Atlanta, Houston, New York and Chicago we have scheduled an event in San Diego on September 13 (details are provided below). We also hope to hold a training/outreach event later this year in Washington, DC.

Specific information on the Washington, DC event will be sent out and posted to our website once the event has been finalized.

The format for the San Diego event is below:

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, but RSVPs are necessary for either of the sessions.

To RSVP, please e-mail your name, title, and company/organization to ftz@trade.gov or call Marsha Foust at (202) 482-2862 by the date indicated below. Please specify which outreach session(s) you would like to attend.
