12th Annual CompTIA Global Trade Compliance Best Practices Conference
Sep 18 all-day

12th Annual CompTIA Global Trade Compliance Best Practices Conference

September 18th, 2018, 8 AM – 5 PM
10155 Pacific Heights Boulevard
San Diego, California 92121

Registration is open for CompTIA’s 12th Annual Global Trade Compliance Best Practices Conference! This industry only event is rated best in class by past attendees. Participants have open discussion of issues and challenges and share best practices in trade compliance.

Panel Topics:

Pro-active Trade Policy Management in the Post-Globalization Era
How can you stay abreast of trade policy changes and manage risk?
The US administration is disrupting long held practices regarding free trade. In this dynamic environment, trade professionals must assess the risks and opportunities policy changes present for their companies. Doing so can be difficult given the high stakes and the complexity of the rules.

An Era of Trade Enforcement
Remaining compliant as the United States’ trade policy continues to push boundaries.
With such a varied and ever-changing landscape as discussed in our first panel, how can you be sure you’re keeping your company compliant? Rest-assured, our esteemed panelists have come together to help you navigate through the tangle of new trade policy initiatives to ensure you don’t end up tomorrow’s headline.

Europe – From Brexit to GDPR – Understanding the Implications to Trade Compliance Ensuring Trade Compliance stays current with European regulations.
Compliance to regulations doesn’t end at the U.S. border, nor are we limited to complying with just direct trade regulations. We’ll discuss the latest developments in the EU as they apply to trade professionals.

Session Topics:

Deemed Export Drama:The Good, the Bad, the Ugly
Are you facing challenges of licensing delays, restrictions and denials more so than before? Have you found yourself in situations where you have too many licenses to manage, you lose track, or let some “slip through the cracks”? Have you ever considered applying for a site license to ease the number of licenses you need to apply for every year? With the new administration and political environment, there are more and more challenges pertaining to deemed export licenses and technology controls. Please join our round table discussion to share your deemed export “drama” and benchmark best practices with your peers from other companies and industry associations.
-Is the ITAR still a 4 letter word?

Working toward a kinder, gentler ITAR
The USML saw, and continues to see, a massive shakeup due to Export Control Reform, and proposed changes to defense services, cloud computing, and various exemptions may alter how US companies work with the ITAR. But have these changes made the ITAR any less of a dark and scary place? What changes could still be made to the ITAR that would achieve the government’s goals and make it easier to comply with? Come discuss these ideas with your peers at our roundtable

You’re Doing What???!
How and why you should stay on top of what’s being developed in your company.
Two minutes before shutting down for the night, an urgent email pops into your inbox. A business unit you’ve never heard of needs to immediately ship a prototype of their latest product you’ve never heard of to a customer in a controlled country. The shipping department told them to call you to get an ECCN and HTS, which the business unit has never heard of. They describe their product that they’ve been working on for over a year, and your only response is, “You’re doing WHAT???!” —- but then you wake up and it was all just a nightmare… or was it? Join this round table and share great ideas for how you stay on top of the business, inject trade compliance into your company’s culture, and communicate trade news that is relevant to the company. Or, if you think this nightmare has good chance of actually happening to you, come join this discussion and get pointers for how to lessen those chances… and start sleeping better.

Metrics and Risks
The ability to identify and measure trade related risks enables companies to make better business decisions, stay compliant and avoid trade controversy. But how do you know if you are measuring what really matters? Join this round table to share ideas for how to effectively measure compliance, systems/tools your company uses to measure risk, and how to leverage trade data provided by government authorities. We’ll also discuss tax/customs authorities’ digitization initiatives, and whether or not these initiatives change the way you monitor and measure risk.

Braumiller Law Group, Of Counsel, Bruce Leeds will join panel 2 on the topic of:
“A Era of Trade Enforcement”

Investing, Trading, and Doing Deals in a Dynamic World 2019
Jan 15 all-day

Braumiller Law Group Founder & Partner, Adrienne Braumiller will speak on a panel at the upcoming, January 15th, 2019 PLI conference in New York City

Adrienne will join panel 3 on the topic of Treaties, Tariffs, and Trade Wars

The event will be streamed live also via a webcast on the 15th.

Why You Should Attend

The first two years of the Trump Administration have ushered in an environment characterized by paradox. On the one hand the investment climate has rarely looked better: the US is experiencing a remarkably stable bull stock market, the world economy is growing, there are massive reserves of uncommitted international investment capital, reduced tax drag on investment dollars entering the US economy, a less intrusive regulatory environment in the US (with some key exceptions), and an Administration that is hungry to “get wins” by doing deals and creating US jobs. On the other hand, the political and policy environment is permeated by contention, anxiety, and uncertainty: a dynamic President, a simmering trade war, the ascendance of nationalist politics in the US and internationally, rumors of US institutional crisis, strained federal agencies, active reassessment of the cardinal US commitments to cooperative security in the post-World War II era, and a geopolitical environment of active great power competition.

This seminar will consider the impact and future trajectory of this paradox in three related policy contexts directly affecting the international business and deal environment: foreign investment; technology and export controls; and commercial trade, treaties, and tariffs. The seminar will bring together industry, financial, and policy experts; attorneys and professional service providers; US and foreign Government officials; and corporate executives who operate at the intersection of policy, trade, and finance to deliver interdisciplinary insight into the risks and opportunities of a dynamic world.

What You Will Learn

• What macro drivers underlie US Administration priorities in each of the three policy contexts;
• How those policies have evolved in the first half of the Administration;
• How those policies will likely continue to evolve in light of the mid-term elections and geo-political developments;
• The practical impact the policies are generating in the business and financial environment;
• The industries and sectors where Administration policies are having the greatest impact; and
• Practical approaches that companies and investors may take to mitigate risk and maximize opportunity in the current policy environment.

Who Should Attend

Attorneys, business executives and leaders, financial advisors, government leaders, and investors
