Export Controls Meeting
Hotel Palomar Chicago - Chicago, IL
July 9th & 10th, 2012
Compliance with Export Controls has become one of the hottest topics among research administrators. This two day meeting is designed for recent export control officers as well as the more experienced compliance officer struggling with some of the vagueness and expansiveness of the regulations. Day One will begin with an overview of the regulations and why they exist, and quickly drop into such topics as creating effective communications between researchers and administrators; and the importance of balancing academic freedom and compliance. Day Two will examine the hallmarks of a robust compliance program, and tools used by the administrators practicing in this arena.
Who Should Attend: The new export control officer or those new to the topic of export controls as well as more veteran administrators looking to increase their understanding of export controls and the building blocks of an effective compliance program.
