Welcome to Our New Web Site and Our New Name!
We have recently changed our name from The Miami Valley International Trade Association (MVITA) to The International Trade Association of Southwest Ohio (ITASWO), as our reach has greatly expanded beyond the Miami Valley.
ITASWO is a volunteer organization that focuses on promoting international trade, both exporting and importing in Southwest Ohio. It supports regional Ohio businesses in their pursuits to buy and sell products and services internationally.
ITASWO conducts internationally oriented and informative programs throughout the year to educate the business community in the processes of selling in and developing business in foreign countries. Much of the support is derived from its membership with its broad spectrum of experts in various international sectors such as accounting, banking, freight forwarding, law, marketing, sales and regulations.
Association activities are supported through membership dues and program fees. ITASWO functions through a Managing Director with oversight by a 16 member elected board of trustees and appointed officers. It is incorporated as an Ohio non-profit corporation with all income used solely in support of Association activities.
We thank Marketing Options for our new branding including: new web, logo, domain, collateral and e-marketing.
