2019 AHF NATIONAL CONFERENCE ARIZONA

PRESIDENT'S CORNER

I guess by now, many if not all of you, have heard our President’s threat to impose tariffs on both China and Mexico. Well, it is no longer a threat as our President has moved forward with his threat against China on items scheduled to be shipped to the U.S. starting on May 10, 2019. Though in-stock items from your vendors are available, it is unclear if all vendors will distinguish the difference or impose the tariff unilaterally.

Tariff's and the Effect on your Budget
