Calling ALL Animal Lovers! Walk for the Animals – 2/28/15

posted by Jennifer Diaz October 10, 2014 0 comments

Every now and then there is a charity that just plain and simply warms your heart and has you painlessly giving away your money you work so hard to obtain.  The Humane Society of Greater Miami is that charity for me, hence the break from our normal customs and trade posts. Both of my precious pets are from the Humane Society – and I am extremely thankful. 

This is my small way to give back, and I hope you will join me if you are in Miami on 2/28/15!

CBP’s 2013 East Coast Trade Symposium in D.C. – HAS BEEN CANCELLED by Government Shutdown

posted by Jennifer Diaz October 16, 2013 0 comments

As a result of the prolonged lapse in government funding, CBP’s much-anticipated 2013 East Coast Trade Symposium in D.C. has been postponed.  The lapse in appropriations has significantly impacted CBP’s ability to hold the event as planned.  Although CBP was hopeful that the appropriations issues would have been resolved by now, and were hoping to proceed as planned, unfortunately, that is not possible.  CBP is committed to hosting the event at a later date, and looks forward to announcing the new date as soon as possible.

For those that have registered and paid for their symposium registration, CBP will be refunding your registration fee.  The refunds will be processed once the partial government shutdown is concluded.

As soon as CBP announces the new dates for the Symposium, we will let you know.

CANCELLED DUE TO SHUTDOWN – CBP’s 2013 East Coast Trade Symposium in D.C.

posted by Jennifer Diaz September 18, 2013 0 comments

Mark your calendars for the CBP 2013 East Coast Trade Symposium, scheduled for October 24 – 25, 2013, at the Washington Hilton Hotel in Washington, D.C.  This year’s theme is “Increasing Economic Competitiveness Through Global Partnerships and Innovation”.

Based on the overwhelming interest received by CBP for participation at the Symposium, CBP is limiting attendance to three (3) participants per company to afford equal representation from all members of the international trade community.  If a company exceeds the limitation, subsequent registrations will automatically be placed on the waiting list. 

Registration for onsite participation is $108, and will open TODAY, September 18, 2013 at 12:00 p.m. EST.  Act fast, this event is usually sold out typically within a day!  

 

Attendance at the Symposium is an excellent opportunity to meet with all levels at CBP, so take advantage of this opportunity!  For a sneak peak at what to expect in DC, see the agenda here.

 

See you at the CBP Symposium!

 

An added bonus:

  • As a special opportunity for U.S. citizens participating in this year’s CBP 2013 East Coast Trade Symposium, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) will be on-site to conduct interviews for those interested in enrolling in the Global Entry program. Act within the next week, in order to be eligible for on-site enrollment. This offer is only available to those who have completed the online application, paid the $100 application fee, and are pre-approved through the Global Online Enrollment System.
  • Interested attendees must apply for Global Entry by Friday, October 10.
  • When applying, be sure to only select the Global Entry option. Global Entry is extremely popular with frequent international travelers because approved travelers use a kiosk to enter the U.S. rather than waiting in line to see an officer. For U.S. travelers, Global Entry approval also allows you to enroll in the Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) PreCheck trusted traveler program, which expedites screening through TSA checkpoints at participating airports.

This is a terrific benefit I hope you will take advantage of.  I am a HUGE advocate of the TSA PreCheck program, check out my blog post regarding this wonderful program here
