Forums on the Latest EB-5 Developments

It has been a wild ride these past few months for the EB-5 program – so much new information, so many open questions and pending changes. I long for the opportunity to huddle with a room full of experts and process where we are and how we can best move forward with EB-5 cases in the current environment. Fortunately we have coming up a couple excellent opportunities to do just that. Be sure to book your place before these sell out!

March 30, 2012 Portland, OR “Unlocking Foreign Capital through the Federal EB-5 Program”
Unlike many EB-5 events, this conference doesn’t focus on theory for service providers but on practical information that people actually putting together a Regional Center or EB-5 deal need to know. The roster of speakers features a long list of experts including immigration attorneys, securities attorneys, an economist, experts in escrow and marketing, and principals of several successful Regional Centers. If you are exploring the possibility of using EB-5 investment, this event is a must for you. The material that you gather from listening to the presentations and networking with the speakers and your fellow participants will save you considerable time, trouble, and expense in the long run. Why learn the hard way when you can spend one day in Portland with all the brains you could want to pick arrayed before you? And if you want to make it two days in Portland, you can stay for the seminar in EB-5 marketing being held by Brian Su on 3/31 at the same venue.

April 30-May 1, 2012 Laguna Nigel, CA “2nd Annual IIUSA EB-5 International Investment & Economic Development Forum”
The IIUSA annual meeting this year promises to be an exciting one for EB-5 practitioners. It overlaps with the 5/1 in-person EB-5 Stakeholder meeting at the California Service Center, which is sure to offer fireworks, and it will unveil two significant treats: the 2010 USCIS EB-5 training materials and 2008-2009 I-829 RFEs and Denials released to IIUSA in response to FOIA requests.

You might also consider the 4/20 AILA EB-5 event, which will provide valuable legal education and let you find out how immigration lawyers behave in the Bahamas.
