Export Control Industry Benchmarking Program
In addition, NCITD and AAEI are teaming up to present a unique export control benchmarking program in Washington, October 31st, the day before the Update 2007 Conference begins. This program will allow active, but anonymous, audience participation. Each participant will be provided with a handheld “voting” device. Responses will be tallied electronically and anonymously, and displayed to the audience in a matter of seconds! This will promote an unusually frank sharing of information about sensitive topics such as salaries, disclosures and enforcement activity.
The topics that will be covered during the benchmarking program are trade compliance programs, staffing, organizational structures and reporting, policies and procedures, training, internal audits and reviews, classification practices, licensing procedures, deemed exports, antiboycott compliance, voluntary disclosures and enforcement experiences.
For more information and to register for this program, which costs $150 per person, please see the following link on the AAEI's website: www.aaei.org/tier.asp?bid=1790.
