The Grantee Committee serves to bring together FTZ Grantees to optimize their Foreign Trade Zone and to further their professional development. The Grantees discuss issues relevant to their zones, which help the NAFTZ advocacy for the FTZ program throughout the United States. Members of the Grantee Committee share best practices in operations, marketing, events, and training.
The networking opportunities help Grantees in their professional development and provides contacts throughout the country. Grantees also have the unique opportunity to share questions amongst the committee on regulations and issues to improve their knowledge and optimize their operations.
Grantees share ideas on events they can host in their service area and on marketing techniques they can use in growing their client base in their zones. The Grantee Committee hosts the Catherine Durda Marketing Award each year to promote best practices in marketing the FTZ program by Grantees.
The Grantee Committee meets monthly.
