JVC to Present JA Show Seminar on Terrorism's Impact on Industry

Due to changes created by proposed legislation and international trade agreements affecting the jewelry industry – and independent retailer jewelers in particular – the Jewelers Vigilance Committee will present The War on Terrorism and Its Impact On the Independent Retail Jeweler at the JA NY Show, Jacob Javits Center, on Jan. 26 from 1:30-2:30 p.m. The program will be presented by Cecilia L. Gardner, JVC's executive director and general counsel, and sponsored by Stuller.

"At this uncertain time in world politics, our government is concentrating their attention on businesses that carry on substantial international transactions," says Gardner. "This inevitably includes the jewelry industry, with its frequent international trades and international shipping of product and financial money transfers. JVC's seminar will explain specific actions retailers can take to ensure their businesses from potential exploitation."

"Stuller is sponsoring JVC's 'War Against Terrorism' seminar to help retailers learn how to comply with new trade arrangements," says Matt Stuller, chairman and CEO. "This program provides the latest information about the Kimberley Process and the U.S. Patriot Act, both government regulations that will significantly change – and protect – retailers conducting business across international borders. Stuller is proud to be the exclusive sponsor of this important seminar."

Additional JVC education seminars include: The Art of the Deal – Your Contractual Obligations When Selling or Buying; Five Easy Ways to Get Sued – Legal Liabilities of Retail Jewelers; Appraisal Liabilities – Standing Behind Your Jewelry Appraisals; Selling Compliantly – Best Advertising Practices.
