State of Ohio News
GlobalReach Documenting Export Compliance: 
Documenting Export Compliance is a one-day workshop intended for professionals tasked with overseeing, developing, or improving a company's adherence to the U.S. rules on exporting, including the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) and International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR).
 
If your company is selling or attempting to sell products or technology to foreign nationals foreign military, U.S. military, U.S. aerospace or U.S.-based re-exporters, this seminar is a must to attend. The program will take a practical approach to examine how a company should install a framework that supports its overall compliance obligations. 
 
We are thrilled to have export compliance expert Michael Easton of Star USA joining us as our featured speaker.
The 2020 IMAGE Grant is Coming.. .
Did you know that that state of Ohio has a grant to support small-medium sized exporters? The International Market Access Grant for Exporters (IMAGE) has helped dozens of exporters across the state offset the costs required to help their products reach foreign markets.
 
The grant funds are allocated on a first come first serve basis, so we always encourage companies to get their application in sooner rather than later. Be on the lookout for an announcement very soon when the grant application opens. When the announcement is made we will blast out details to all on this list.
 
Meantime, if you have questions about the IMAGE grant, possible expenses it covers, and whether your company qualifies, reach out to our team at gbc@csuohio.edu
