[10/11/17]   Exciting Raffle, Amazing Jewelry Silent Auction at WESCCON - Important Cause!



A highlight of WESCCON each year is the Pacific Coast Council's Trade Expansion Political Action Committee's Reception. Open to all WESCCON attendees. Refreshments, raffle, and exciting silent auction of fabulous jewelry from Mexico - collected and curated by Guillermo Lizarraga. Beautiful and unique pieces, for women and men, going for very affordable prices.



Jack Hubbard, Treasurer of the PCC's Political Action Committee will conduct the PAC Reception and Raffle.



The PCC PAC funds collected from the auction, raffle and pledges, are used to support the political candidates who work for the interests of the customs brokers, freight forwarders and the entire international trade community. Very important at a time when there is so much talk of terminating trade relationships which generate so many jobs in our industry. We will briefly review our West Coast Members of Congress who have helped out the trade community this year.



Swing by the PCC PAC reception, 5:30 PM in Desert 2, immediately following the last session on Friday.

Have a beverage, an 'off-the-record' political update, bid for jewelry, enter the Raffle, support the PCC Trade Expansion Political Action Committee!

Amazon and Maersk: Challenges for Brokers and Forwarders?

International trade is changing before our very eyes. Amazon is morphing from a sales platform, to becoming the BCO/shipper of apparel, wine, etc., and the customs broker for those imports, as well as, potentially, all products sold on its platform.

Maersk, the carrier, announces it will finance "trade-related services".

These existential challenges for the independent licensed customs broker and freight forwarder will be tackled head-on at WESCCON.

The Commissioner committed to WESCCON...have you?

President Trump has nominated current Acting Commissioner Kevin McAleenan to be Commissioner of CBP. Senate confirmation hearings are next; he'll be grilled.

Even in the midst of these unprecedented demands, Dept. of Homeland Security today confirmed Kevin McAleenan will Keynote WESCCON. Seeing, hearing him, asking questions -- a valuable exciting opportunity for WESCCON attendees!
