The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the trade association for the firearms and ammunition industry, today announced it would join Orchid Advisors in joint sponsorship of the annual Firearms Industry Compliance Conference to be held May 11- 13, 2015 at the Marriott’s Orlando World Center Resort. The 2015 conference brings together firearm manufacturers, importers, exporters, distributors, dealers and regulators such as the DOJ and ATF to answer the question, “How can I optimize compliance?”
“We are pleased to further our relationship with NSSF,” says Jon Rydberg, CEO of Orchid Advisors. “Orchid brings the only dedicated focus to solving firearms industry challenges with process and technology. NSSF’s involvement in the conference will add critical insight for participants on evolving firearm and ammunition regulation and add a more balanced discussion across the manufacturer-distributor-dealer environment.”
Larry, Keane, NSSF Senior Vice President, Assistant Secretary & General Counsel says, “NSSF is pleased to join with Orchid Advisors to co-sponsor this important and timely conference because it will offer the practical, operations-oriented solutions to our member base that we strive to provide.”
Rydberg adds, “We are pleased that ATF is committed to the annual Firearms Industry Compliance Conference series. This provides a valuable opportunity for industry members to interact directly with senior ATF personnel on compliance topics.”
