Trade Compliance Special Interest Group Meeting 

Collaboration Strategies to Advance Your Company's Trade Agenda 
July 26, 2022 09:00 AM - 02:00 PM 
Hear how other organizations collaborate with internal and external teams to maximize trade strategies for their company. 

Collaboration is key when it comes to addressing both trade compliance risks and maximizing the impact of trade opportunities for our organizations. But who are the right internal teams, external partners, trade associations, etc., to partner with, and what does this collaboration actually look like?

We are thrilled to be joined by Ted Sherman, Senior Director of Global Trade Operations at Medtronic, and Chair-Elect of AAEI (American Association of Exporters and Importers). Ted's experience leading trade teams at Medtronic and Target - as well as leadership roles with COAC and BACM - have helped him build a reputation as a strong collaborator across the trade industry.

Join us from 9am to 2pm in person at the beautiful Pyle center in Madison, or 9am to noon virtually to learn from the experiences of others and share your experiences with your peers! This event will be followed by an ice cream social next door on the Memorial Union Terrace.

Have a story to share? We are looking for members to participate on a panel and share their experiences with effective trade collaboration. If you're interested, please contact Jenny Patzlaff.
