I can't believe summer is almost over!  I hope all of you could relax a little and unwind. With fall fast approaching, the WTA is gearing up for an amazing program year! For starters, we have a series of monthly webinars on "Best Practices in Trade Operations," which include some amazing benefits for WTA members. We will also
visit "China Lights" at Boerner Botanical Gardens and program skype with the Netherlands. 

As we know, NAFTA discussions are heating up and the WTA is on the front lines of the discussion. The Canadian House of Commons has put together a committee on international trade focusing on NAFTA. On Friday, September 29, we are hosting a roundtable with this group to hear what changes the Canadian government would like to see enacted in the renegotiation of NAFTA and voice our perspectives as well. I have been told that the feedback we provide will be reported directly back to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's team. In addition, WTA is also proud to be partnering with The Logistics Council this November as they present an expert led program on the future of NAFTA.

Be sure to check out our programs & mark your calendars. Questions? Contact me, I'm happy to hear from you.
