The AAFA Trade Policy Committee meeting will meet on November 14, 2023 at the offices of Hogan Lovells in Washington DC.
AAFA will follow health and safety protocols. All attendees will be required to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination. Please review the Health & Safety Hub, below, for more information.
Open only to AAFA Trade Policy Committee members and invited guests, the AAFA Trade Policy Committee meeting is a "must-attend" event for anybody who wants to learn about and affect key trade, customs, regulatory, and legislative issues impacting the industry in 2023. Meetings typically feature discussions with officials from Congress and several Executive Branch agencies, including the office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR), the U.S. Department of Commerce, the U.S. Department of Labor, the U.S. Department of State, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

Health & Safety Hub: COVID-19 Precautions
AAFA will no longer require guests to show proof of vaccination to attend meetings or events. For safety reasons, AAFA still recommends that guests be vaccinated (and wear masks if not vaccinated or immune-compromised) but we will no longer check the vaccination status of each attendee. While COVID is still with us, the risks seem more manageable so we have made this policy change.
