    Before our Trade Specialists can meet with you, and before the Research Team begins to work on your Export Marketing Plan or research request, we need you to complete our online registration form.  AITC services are confidential and offered at no charge to Alabama’s small business community.

    If you have a face-to-face meeting scheduled with one of our trade specialists, you can download and print the registration form.   Please download the form here. (Also available in Spanish.)



Why do I need to Register?

The Trade Center provides free and confidential services to small businesses throughout Alabama.  Our friends at the SBA have requested that we collect some basic demographic information on the clients that we serve, and verify that they meet SBA’s size requirements.  If you have questions about the registration process, let us know!

All clients are required to complete a one-time registration form.  This form is needed before the counseling session begins. If you’ve downloaded the form, please fax the signed & completed to 205-348-6974.  Alternately, you can scan and email your signed form.

The Trade Center provides free and confidential business counseling tailored to meet the needs of your small business. Whether you are new-to-export or growing your international presence, AITC counselors are here to help you succeed.
