Sponsored by Miller Proctor Law PLLC

Join Melissa Proctor and other experienced ECTI instructors on October 28th – 31st for the ITAR Defense Trade Controls/EAR Export Controls Seminar Series which will be held at the Sheraton Crescent Hotel in Phoenix, Arizona.

This seminar series provides both novice and experienced export compliance professionals with a comprehensive education on compliance with the United States export laws and regulations. We will provide a solid foundation of U.S. export controls, review the new trade and enforcement priorities of the Trump Administration, discuss Export Control Reform (ECR) changes, and recent developments that will impact your export operations and compliance programs. Upon completion of the seminars, you should walk away with a firm understanding of the rules that will allow you to minimize delays in your exports, minimize your costs of compliance, and reduce the risk of inadvertent export violations, thereby giving your organization a competitive advantage and a solid footing for its compliance program.
