Education Committee

<< Back to Committees

Develops and schedules seminars, workshops and training events for membership. Oversees the scholarship program.
The Educational Committee reaches out to various organizations e.g. Customs, USDA, FDA…… to help bring seminars of interest to the community. We look to the membership for ideas and requests. Remember the Educational Events are YOUR EVENTS – they are for you and your staff, empowering you to stay at the forefront of the ever changing environment in which we do business – What do YOU want training on?
We are a co-sponsor of the ACCREDITED certificate program in cooperation with CITD at Skyline College. Visit or the link on our home page for an overview, curriculum detail and registration information. Use this program to train new and existing employees!!
And, many of our educational programs are certified by the National Customs Brokers and Forwarders Association (NCBFAA) for credits towards their Certified Customs Specialist (CCS) program.  Your firm must be a member of NCBFAA and you must register with them to participate in the program.
We invite members wanting to get involved with this or any other committee to contact the committee chairperson at the email address below.  We are always looking for members to get more involved with their association and be a part of the process.
