Register Today for the TBA Immigration Law Section Business Immigration Investment Seminar

I want to update you and provide additional information about the Business Immigration Investment Seminar on April 7 that the TBA Immigration Section is sponsoring.

In addition to the traditional U.S. Government Forum/Seminar that the TBA Immigration Section gives every year (with CIS, ICE ERO, ICE Counsel), we decided that this year we would give a Business Immigration Investment Seminar due to the fact that Tennessee has been the number one state for the past three years for international investment.

We have created a three-hour afternoon seminar/forum with three panels covering business immigration investment issues from the varying perspectives of the government sector, private industry/company sector, and cross border/financial services sector, with the following speakers:

1) State, Federal & International Government Perspective(s) Panel, including:

  • The Tennessee Economic Development Office (Nashville);
  • Director of Appalachian EB5 Regional Center (Asheville, North Carolina);
  • Director of Bluegrass International Fund EB5 Regional Center (Louisville); and
  • Director General of British Consulate (Atlanta).

2)      State, National and International Company Perspective(s) Panel, inlcuding the:

  • Executive/Director GE Power (Chattanooga);
  • President of Astra Services (Coral Springs, Florida);
  • President of Business Strategies/Plans (Miami); and
  • Note: A VW executive is also tentatively scheduled.

3)      State, National & International Cross Border and Financial Services Perspective(s), including the:

  • Director of FedEx E-Commerce (Memphis);
  • Financial Advisor of Merrill Edge/Bank of America (Chattanooga); and
  • Partner of International Tax Firm (Washington, D.C.). 

This seminar will be held at the Tennessee Bar Center in Nashville on April 7 from 1 p.m. through 4:15 p.m.  Additional information — along with registration details — can be found on the website.
