Why Join FTA?
The FTA is the oldest organization promoting the growth of international trade in Southern California. It acts as an informative resource and networking center for its members, and monitors and advocates legislative issues on a state and federal level.
The membership is represented by a cross-section of major exporters, importers, manufacturers, customs brokers, freight forwarders, international bankers, attorneys and other prominent service industries.
Reflecting the diversity of our region's business community, FTA membership embraces a wide spectrum of firms and individuals involved directory or indirectly, in international trade. Today, the FTA membership spans the U.S. and our goal is to provide services to members around the world.
Don't miss out on the fun! Longtime FTA members and their guests consistently attend two of our annual functions: the Golf Tournament and the December Holiday Event. In addition to being great networking venues, these events serve as opportunities to entertain your clients and to market your company by serving as a sponsor. The awarding of door prizes are highlights at these programs with past winners walking away with collectible items and cash prizes.
The FTA was founded in 1919 by individuals who had the dream of establishing a force to represent the international trade community in Southern California for years to come. FTA has honored their foresight by remaining one of the regions most respected trade associations.
