The NCBFAA Educational Institute (NEI) is excited to announce that registration for its 2021 Global Trade Educational Conference (G.TEC) is now open!


The NEI invites all global logistics professionals to its 7th Annual Global Trade Educational Conference (G·TEC). This two-day event in Baltimore, Maryland, will give customs brokers, freight forwarders, NVOCCs, OTI, service providers, importers, exporters, and all global logistics professionals an opportunity to update themselves on industry developments and connect with colleagues new and old.


Virtual attendance is also available, allowing you can gain knowledge from anywhere! Additionally, NEI and hotel staff for in-person attendance will comply with all state and venue COVID-19 protocols, so you can feel safe attending the event!


Register by July 3 to take advantage of early bird pricing – just $395 for members!


Attendance at G.TEC (both virtual and in-person) is worth 12 CCS/CES credits.


Also consider applying for the first G.TEC Scholarship, sponsored by Avalon Risk Management. The scholarship funds may be used to cover the cost of coach airfare and up to three (3) nights of accommodations at the conference hotel. The NEI will waive the conference registration fee for the scholarship winner. It is our intention to offer this scholarship on an annual basis to promote education and industry involvement.

For consideration, applications must be received on or before June 25, 2021. The scholarship recipient will be notified by July 1, 2021. At that time, the scholarship winner will be provided with all the necessary information for redeeming their scholarship award.
