The Steering Committee welcomes 48 of the most experienced attorneys, in-house counsel and compliance professionals in the US defense industry to discuss shared challenges on the impact of government policy, regulations, and compliance with export regulation.
Using candid, seminar-style discussion at this annual meeting, the group examines trends and developments for meaningful dialogue on the most pressing export controls issues. During some of the Sessions, participants have the opportunity to obtain the perspectives of key USG officials.
The Steering Committee, comprised of experts in the field, personally nominates all invitees and develops the Agenda, which forms the basis of our discussions.
