The Greater Des Moines Partnership will host training sessions for exporters to learn how to use eCertify, a new state-of-the-art electronic program for completing certificates of origin. The new process replaces a paper-based system and will enable companies to print the certificates in a much shorter time. "The implementation of eCertify will allow the Partnership to better serve current and future Iowa exporters looking to expand their international trade opportunities," said Jay Byers, the Partnership's CEO. The training sessions will be held April 11 from noon to 1 p.m. and April 13 from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m., in the second floor boardroom at the Partnership Building, 700 Locust St. To reserve a spot, contact Joaquin Flores at (515) 286.4913 or email her at
