Testimonials

ISF IMPLEMENTATION UPDATE & eBONDS WITH CBP MAY 2014

  1. Hi. Both agenda and presenters were very informative. The presentation of e-bonds was great. Thanks again for sending. I will share it. (Marina Cormace-Olsen, Nikon)
  2. If you recall, when Bruce was speaking one could hear a pin drop! That is rare with large groups. Bruce made it personal, told his story, did not read from a prepared text. He gave just enough detail to make the presentation interesting and informative! I would listen to him anytime. (Kathleen Goulding, Estee Lauder)
  3. I thought the presentations were excellent and very informative. Bruce and Craig provided an excellent inside view of the revenue collection process and CBP's ISF enforcement policy. Lisa was able to add value by providing the trade and surety perspective and help clarify some of the trade's concerns. (Sean Doherty - BSI Supply Chain Security)
  4. The ISF presentation was very informative and a great help in understanding what the importer's obligations are. Now we have a clear picture of how penalties will be enforced. (Laura Callesano, CBC America)

Had a great time last night.  I was speaking with a lot of the new members who were very impressed with the agenda.

Thanks again for all your hard work.  Another great year of Pushing the Borders Back and what a great turnout.

I was approached by many members last night who stated that they love the energy that is always in the room at all LIIEA events.

 

Joel, your love and dedication to this industry is surely the reason why this event is always such a success.  

Don’t know how you find the time to do all that you do. 

 

I am honored and proud to be on the board of this organization and to be associated with the rest of the directors and members.

 

Thanks and best regards,

CONFERENCE: (2/13/13) HOT TOPICS: PRESENTED BY THE LIIEA BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Meeting went very well.  Good potpourri of topics. Nice job everyone! Still laughing about CJ's "microphone" joke (sorry Joel) veal was amazing.

P.J. Moffett

 


Director of Global Logistics / Customs Compliance

I got the same positive feeling and that is attributed to your fine class act association. It's really a productive meeting every time attended. Appreciate your diligence in getting the personnel you do for each topic of your meetings

We've found your "resources" tab information enormously helpful. The Powerpoint presentations of some of your events is awesome. I've used several of the resource links for training staff here. Well worth my membership fee.

Thanks again for having us at the event last night.  Who knew gov't folks could be so funny?  Glenda's hair joke takes the prize with Jim's C.R.A.P. coming is as a close second.
