Immigration Law Seminar: New Developments Impacting Business Practice

Thursday, October 4, 2018, 2:00-4:00pm/2F Rose Room, Nippon Club Tower

$30 Member/$50 Non-Member

With the U.S. economy hovering near full employment, and skills shortages in key fields, employers must rely partly on foreign national talent for success. Under the Trump Administration, employers have struggled to forecast access to talent from abroad. Broad changes are taking place to business immigration practice, and immigration policy overall at many levels, from Executive Orders and regulations to less formal but far reaching policy shifts in the immigration agencies. Join Fragomen partners Mr. Shintaro Araki and Mr. Bo Cooper for an insightful evening as they will address these issues and answer your questions.

This year's theme, Growth Through Generosity, focuses on the spreading of values, knowledge, and ideas. It is about the notion of giving--the selfless qualities of our nature-- for a greater cause. These acts of generosity, like a ripple in a pond, reverberate, and form lasting relations we all can take part in. 

JCCI's largest event of the year is set to take place on October 30, 2018 at the New York Hilton Midtown (1335 Avenue of the Americas). We're humbled to have this year's Keynote Speaker to be Michael R. Bloomberg, Entrepreneur, Philanthropist, and Three-term Mayor of NYC; Koki Umeda, President and Chief Executive Officer of Tokio Marine America will be this year's Dinner Chairman; Vincent P. Colman, New York Metro Vice Chairman, PricewaterhouseCoopers will be this year's Dinner Co-Chairman; Eagle on the World awardees this year are Hiroshi Senju, Internationally-Acclaimed Artist, and George Takei, Actor, Author, and Activist. The Honorary Commemorative Award will go to the late Nobuyoshi Kuraoka, Founder of Restaurant Nippon in NYC and Japanese Food and Culture Advocate.
