  • The 2020 Global Trade Finance Workshop series begins in Florida in Q1 and wraps up in California in Q3. Be a part of these popular trade finance workshops, offered in four major North American cities. The workshops offer a deeper dive into Letters of Credit (LC) related topics, and their smaller size optimizes interactive discussions amongst attendees and speakers. In addition to covering what is new in LC’s, each year the topics change and range from compliance, trade-based money laundering (TBML), technology, SWIFT updates and much more.

    All workshops are approved for 12 continuing professional development credits (CPDs) for CDCS recertification. ACAMS credit potential is based on final programing.

    Who Should Attend

    Bankers, importers, exporters, brokers, providers/suppliers and others involved in trade operations and LC document preparations who want a deeper dive discussion on trade finance related topics and other current trade industry issues. Those with CDCS certification should attend to receive professional development units (PDUs) for recertification.

    "As a corporate professional with 20 years experience in international trade, it brought a lot of tangible & intangible values. It was one of the most practical collaboration and brainstorming learning experience critical to a sound business decision making. I commend the program committee for choosing the right topics and wonderful speakers that resonate with my experiences. I enjoyed, learned, raised questions and gained network with the attendees and speakers."
    "It provided a real learning value for managers, and documents checkers as you learn different topics from subject matter expert."
