Event Synopsis:
On August 2, 2017, President Donald Trump signed into law the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA). The new law, which is viewed to have profound impacts on anti-corruption compliance and global supply chains, provides for additional sanctions on Iran, Russia, and North Korea.

The U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) also recently intensified sanctions against Venezuela by prohibiting certain transactions and financing related to the Venezuelan government and state-owned oil and natural gas company Petroleos de Venezuela, S.A. and by blocking the property of, and prohibiting transactions with, Venezuelan government officials.

Listen as a panel of distinguished sanctions professionals organized by The Knowledge Group provide the audience with the latest and emerging issues about the new U.S. sanctions on Iran, North Korea, Russia, and Venezuela. Speakers, among other things, will analyze the most important provisions in CAATSA, and its direct impact on affected firms and companies. Speakers will also offer effective compliance strategies for related businesses.

Brad grew up in a small town in northern Iowa. He studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married his wife one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children.
