It is quite rare that I have the opportunity to leave the office and attend a conference, but last week I made the effort to attend (along with a client) the Export Control Reform full day seminar held here in San Antonio which was hosted by the Bureau of Industry and Security. I was pleasantly surprised by the high degree of professionalism and the in-depth technical overview of ECR that BIS put on. I was especially pleased to see that BIS made the effort to send as presenters several of their most senior licensing officers (folks I deal with regularly over the phone but had never met) down here to the Alamo City. They provided attendees with copies of all of the PowerPoints that were presented throughout the day and the presentations included both in-depth regulatory analysis, some excellent case application material and a take-away copy of the latest version of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). Overall, the presenters did an outstanding job presenting technical information without being too “dry” and they had an open mic all day long for ongoing Q&A. In this day and age when there is a major opportunity cost associated with leaving the office for the day, BIS’s export control conference is one conference that will be worth your time.
