Don't Wait! Registration Now Open for NCBFAA's 2019 Government Affairs Conference!
It's that time of year again! In just a few short months, NCBFAA members from across the country will gather in Washington, D.C. for NCBFAA's 2019 Government Affairs Conference to help shape and grow the future of our industry by learning about the numerous legislative and regulatory issues that are confronting our industry! Make your voice heard by engaging with your Representatives and persuading them to become more actively involved in addressing these issues.
The Government Affairs Conference is also a great place to meet industry peers. There is a myriad of social networking opportunities, including an opening reception, a Monday luncheon, panels, sessions and a Tuesday breakfast and closing evening reception. Meet with experts in their fields to talk about best practices and discuss the latest industry trends.
If you are a Customs Broker, Ocean Freight Forwarder, Ocean Transportation Intermediary, Indirect Air Carrier, Drawback Specialist, Manager or Executive of a logistics company, or Industry Service Provider (and qualify for NCBFAA membership) interested in the effects of regulation and politics on the transportation logistics industry, you should join us at the NCBFAA 2019 Government Affairs Conference in Washington, DC, September 22-24!
If you're ready to book a hotel room for the Conference (and you should, as it's a notoriously busy time of year), we'll once again be staying at the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill. We have secured a special room block rate of $279/night. Reservations for the Conference can be made here.
The program for the event will be developed over the course of the next several weeks, but please bookmark the website and be on the lookout for future announcements to come! We can't wait to see you in Washington, D.C.!
Special Discounted Registrations Available to Certain First Timers
As an added incentive for those of you who are volunteer with your local Association but have never attended an NCBFAA GAC before, you may be able to save 50 percent on your 2019 GAC registration. Simply contact your local Affiliated Association; you will find a list of them here, and ask about the Emerging Leaders Mentor Program (ELMP).
Through the ELMP, each of the NCBFAA's 29 Affiliated Associations may submit the ELMP form for one selected individual to receive a 50 percent discount on an individual registration for the GAC. The discount only applies to the cost of the individual registration, not to spouses or guests. But any qualified individual may ask their local NCBFAA Affiliated Association to consider them for the discount.
To qualify, the first timer, submitted by the local Affiliated Association, must be (1) a Government Affairs Conference first time attendee, and (2) employed by an NCBFAA Regular Member company in good standing. You must have the form into us and register by the Early Bird deadline and if you register first you will be ineligible.
