Scholarship

Celebrating

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 2019 in Palm Springs, CA on October 10-
13, 2019. This is the 12th 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 in Palm Springs. 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 of experience in the logistics industry. Applications must be
completed and submitted to your local association president before COB July 1, 2019 for consideration. All
grant recipients must agree to submit a written summary by November 1, 2019 summarizing their experience
at WESCCON and explaining how their attendance will benefit them and further their career goals.
