On April 18-20, 2012 I attended the 25th Annual North American Small Business International Trade Educators (NASBITE) Conference in Portland, Oregon. The days were packed with numerous breakout sessions, ranging from China and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and Currency Exchange Issues to Opportunities in Colombia. The keynote sessions included Lessons Learned in Brazil, TSA Update, and and ITA Presentation on Small Business Exporting.
I was also able to visit the World Trade Center of Portland, which is mainly a conference center, but it is always great to be able to visit a sister WTC! I am looking forward to applying the knowledge I gained to better assist our clients and members.
