Coronavirus Update
The health and well-being of our members, conference attendees, speakers, sponsors and employees is always a top priority for BAFT. To help stop the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), BAFT is following the Center for Disease Control’s guidance and recommendations. BAFT has decided to postpone its upcoming Middle East and North Africa (MENA) Bank to Bank Forum scheduled for March 18-19, as well as the Master Participation Agreement (MPA) Pre-Conference Workshop on March 17, both to be held in Dubai, UAE. We have rescheduled the MENA Bank to Bank Forum for September 1-2, while the MPA Pre-Conference Workshop will now be in the afternoon of August 31, both in Dubai. We have also chosen to postpone our planned North America Annual Meeting, scheduled for May 3-6, and our Regional Bank Conference, scheduled for June 15-16. Both conferences will be rescheduled for November 2020 and consolidated with the 30th Annual Conference on International Trade. We believe this is the best way to ensure the safety of our community at this time. Please feel free to reach out to BAFT directly by emailing for any questions.

BAFT offers various conferences and workshops throughout the year to keep members informed on the latest updates on international transaction banking, provide a venue for networking with colleagues, clients (current and prospective) and peers, and take advantage of educational opportunities for CDCS holders to earn PDUs to achieve recertification.
