It's Not Too Late to Attend This Year's Government Affairs Conference!


NCBFAA's Government Affairs Conference is almost here! If you haven't yet registered for the industry's most political event of the year, don't worry! You still have time! Online registration ends on September 12. Don't miss out on your chance to learn about timely and critically important industry changes directly from the influential players involved. While you're here, use that knowledge to engage with Congressional decision-makers so they fully understand the implications and ramifications of any trade-related legislation placed before them. Make a difference in your community and for your business by ensuring your voice is heard!


Our diverse program is jam-packed with information and discussions from subject matter experts and regulatory agencies vested in the movement of trade. Learn about how the trade is preparing for 2019 and beyond, the latest on Drawback, how the NCBFAA endorsed "Bankruptcy Bill" is fairing, policy developments at the WCO and an update on Tariff filings. This year, we have representatives from U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the Federal Maritime Commission, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and many more, including:


  • Acting Deputy Commissioner Robert E. Perez, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP)
  • FMC Commissioner Rebecca Dye
  • Todd Owen, Executive Assistant Commissioner, Office of Field Operations, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP)
