Webinar: Rules for Instruments Containing Endangered Species

Are you ready to follow new rules for crossing international borders with musical instruments that contain protected species, such as ivory, rosewood, tortoise shell, and other material?  We are hosting a webinar with the American Federation of Violin and Bow Makers, League of American Orchestras, The Recording Academy, and NAMM featuring experts from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the agency that implements the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) in the United States.

Join us on Wednesday, December 7 at 12:00 noon Eastern for a free one-hour webinar that provides an overview of the rules for musical instruments and invites your questions. The event will review the basics and also provide important insights into the U.S. African elephant ivory rules adopted last summer and the new policies created at this year’s CITES treaty negotiations that go into effect in 2017.
