a decade of promoting education and industry involvement.

The Pacific Coast Council of Customs Brokers & Freight Forwarders Associations (PCC) and Avalon Risk Management are offering five (5) scholarships to attend WESCCON 2017 in Rancho Mirage, CA on October 12-15. This is the tenth year that the scholarship has been offered to promote education and industry involvement. The scholarship funds provided by Avalon will be used to cover the cost of coach airfare (if traveling by air) and 3 nights of accommodations at the Omni Rancho Las Palmas, Rancho Mirage. The PCC will waive the conference registration fee for scholarship recipients.

 

Each of the five PCC member associations (San Diego, Los Angeles, Northern California, Columbia River and Washington State) will select one qualified applicant for the scholarship award.  If a member association is unable to select a qualified applicant another recipient will be chosen by the WESCCON General Chair and the PCC President from the pool of applicants received by the other four associations. 

 
Candidates must have a minimum of 2 years experience in the logistics industry.  Applications must be completed and submitted to your local association president on or before August 7th, 2017 for consideration. All recipients will be notified by August 18th, 2017 and provided necessary information for redeeming their scholarship.
