The Entry Committee of the Trade Support Network (TSN), an advisory board of trade representatives that provides guidance to US Customs on ACE issues, is seeking members of the trade for help in working through matters on forthcoming ACE functionality. Specifically, the organization:
“…would like to establish Trade Working Groups to discuss upcoming requirements and capabilities for Post Release functionality development that began in Increment 10 and will extend to future Increments. Specifically, we are looking for trade volunteers to participate in the following three working groups:
In order to make these discussions manageable and productive, we would like no more than 10 trade members per working group (members can sign up for multiple working groups).
Once the working group members have been identified, we are targeting scheduling several on site sessions [in Washington, DC], beginning the week of August 17th or August 24th. Your input on which week is preferable would be appreciated. Each group will have one full day to meet with the ESAR Team (either Monday or Tuesday or Wednesday). Once we hold our first meeting, we will determine whether additional on-site meetings or teleconferences will be required.”
If you’re qualified and interested, please contact Amy Magnus [firstname.lastname@example.org] and Lee Sandler [LSandler@strtrade.com] with Working Group preference and availability for meetings week/day of August 17th and week/day of August 24th.
The TSN provides a forum for the discussion of significant modernization and automation efforts with the trade community. There are approximately 300 members of the TSN that represent the entire breadth of the trade community, including trade associations, importers, exporters, brokers, carriers, sureties and others.
