Upcoming Export Control Reform Presentations in Cleveland and Rochester
This month, international business and trade attorney, Jon Yormick, will discuss Export Control Reform (ECR) in Cleveland and Rochester.
On October 10, Jon will speak at the monthly luncheon meeting of the Cleveland Foreign Credit Group, the group’s 300th meeting. The Cleveland Foreign Credit Group is made up of international credit managers from leading publicly-traded companies in Northeast Ohio, including Babcock & Wilcox, Lincoln Electric, Lubrizol, Materion, OMG Americas, Parker-Hannifin, and several others. In addition, regional and international banks are well represented in the membership, including Fifth Third Bank, HSBC, KeyBank, and PNC Bank. Half the member companies have annual turnover of at least $500 million. At each meeting, the companies have a presentation on a topic relating to international trade or credit, followed by a discussion of payment terms and experiences regarding customers in countries around the world. In 2007, Jon was recognized as the group’s Member of the Year.
Jon’s presentation on Preparing for Compliance and Enforcement Under Export Control Reform, will focus on the impact of ECR on a company’s sales opportunities and how international credit professionals play a key role in a company’s export compliance program.
One week later, on October 17, in Rochester, New York, Jon will participate on a panel at an ITAR & EAR Expert Roundtable Lunch presented by the Greater Rochester Enterprise, International Business Council. This sold-out event is the second time this year that the panel of experts will gather at the GRE to answer questions and discuss ECR with area companies.
