       Export Control Forum, to be held on February 22-23, 2010 in Irvine, 
BIS has changed the format and venue this year in response to 
       recommendations the export trade community has provided.  The Export

       policy, legal, and licensing specialists from the Bureau of Industry
       and Security.  The Forum will also include representatives from the 
       U.S. Census Bureau, and the Departments of Treasury, State and Defense.
       Together, these speakers will provide updates on significant 
       developments in the export control field.  The day will conclude with a
       gala reception, offering you the opportunity to mingle and discuss
       issues of concern with the presenters and other participants.  On day 
       two, you have the option to choose from one of the two half-day 
       sessions, dedicated to the more in-depth discussion of selected topics.
