Member Terms and Conditions
Standards of Conduct
primary purpose of the Compliance Alliance is to provide a forum for
exporting firms to network, share best practices and stay current on
export regulatory compliance issues. To achieve this goal, the
and its advisory board feel that it is important to create an
environment that emphasizes the exchange of helpful export
regulatory information while minimizing the promotion of specific
products and services targeted towards exporters.
As such, unless written permission is
obtained in advance from the Massachusetts Export Center, service providers are strictly prohibited from
marketing their products and services during networking events, via
email to Compliance
members, or by any other means of promotion.
All Compliance Alliance members are
strictly prohibited from sharing member-only resources and
information with non-members. This includes the Compliance
Alliance member directory and other information provided in the
“Members Only” section of the Compliance Alliance website, such as
webinars and seminar materials. The MSBDC/Massachusetts Export
Center reserves the right to cancel membership for any person that
