ASA to Announce 2014 Workshop Schedule

ASA will soon be announcing the 2014 Workshop schedule.  The workshops change every year, but they are generally focused on identifying the regulations and policies that aircraft parts distributor need to know in order to remain successful n the industry.  In the past, we have addressed topics like:

  • AC 00-56/ASA-100
  • aircraft parts documentation topics (like the 8130-3 tag)
  • approved and unapproved parts
  • counterfeit parts identification
  • distinguishing Commerce-Department-controlled parts from ITAR-controlled parts
  • export out of the United States (BIS, DDTC and OFAC regulations)
  • FAA regulations that affect parts transactions
  • EASA regulations that affect parts transactions
  • hazmat identification in aircraft parts
  • import into the United States
  • liens and other security interests
  • “magic words” for quotes and purchase orders
  • quality assurance
  • safety management systems
  • standard parts and commercial parts
  • using commercial documents to protect your right to get paid

We are just beginning to draft the 2014 workshop.  This is your opportunity to influence the syllabus and make sure we are teaching the subjects that you want to hear about.  Send me a note if you would like to suggest a topic for the 2014 workshop.

ASA’s workshops are subsidized by the Association so the registration fees are very inexpensive. This is an excellent opportunity to introduce new employees to new concepts that they need to understand and for more seasoned employees to ask questions and get answers about the details of compliance and aviation distribution business.  We particularly recommend the class for quality, shipping/receiving and sales people.  We love hearing from sales people that a better understanding of the regulations and policies helped them cement a sale that was falling apart, or helped prevent them from making a mistake on the details of a sale.

Will we be in your city?  This year, ASA is planning to hold workshops in Atlanta, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Seattle and South Florida.  More cities may be announced later.  If we are not in your city, then we would love to see you in a neighboring city!

Dates are not yet set, as we attempt to firm things up with local hotels, but we hope to announced a more formal schedule very soon.
