Who is P.A.E.I.?

The Professional Association of Exporters and Importers (P.A.E.I.) is an organization of professionals involved in import/export activities. Conceptualized in May, 1986, in response to changes in export license controls. P.A.E.I. incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1987.

Objectives of the association include promoting and fostering the role of the import/export professional, providing ongoing education relative to regulatory issues, exchanging information, and enhancing industries' participation in import/export control issues and policies.

In furtherance of its goals, P.A.E.I. sponsors quarterly meetings with featured guest speakers, a bimonthly newsletter, networking and job placement opportunities. Affiliations offer P.A.E.I. member discounts to seminars, services, and products.
