On June 29, 2009, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) posted details on its Update 2009 Conference to be held from September 30 - October 2, 2009 in Washington, D.C.
Interested parties must follow a two-step process to attend this year's conference. First, you must submit the online "Interest Form" between June 25 and July 17, 2009. If there are more potential participants than there is space available, BIS will grant registration through a random selection from the entire list of respondents, regardless of when received during the period. Those selected will be notified and given registration instructions in late July. They must register and submit payment by a designated date indicated in the instructions or their spot will be forfeited and given to someone on the wait list.
Those not selected will be notified that they have been placed on a wait list. More detailed program information will be posted in the coming weeks.
Registration transfers within companies or organizations may be permitted with prior approval from BIS. Registration transfers will not be permitted between different organizations or companies. Registrations may not be resold.
