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.
