How Much Experience is Required?

Membership in the AUECO is open to export control officers and other employees of degree granting institutions of higher education in the United States who are responsible for the administration of export, import and trade sanctions regulations at their institution. Formed in 2008, AUECO initially encouraged more experienced export compliance officers to join in order to recruit a core of experienced personnel. AUECO has now grown to more than 170 members from over 110 different institutions of higher learning, and in 2014 adopted new membership criteria cited in the membership application, now seeking both novice and experienced members to join and help accomplish AUECO’s mission.

Since its inception, AUECO has:

  • developed and issued guidance documents
  • built and implemented educational services in the form of the
    two annual conferences on the Impacts of Export Controls on Higher Education and Scientific Institutions
  • researched and responded to the voluminous regulatory changes associated with export reform to protect fundamental research and the interests of higher education from further encroachment by export and sanctions regulations.

Membership Cost

Membership dues are not required for membership in AUECO at this time. Registration fees may be required to attend some AUECO seminar and events; information about such fees will be provided with the registration materials for the event.
