Immigration Roundtable | International Networking Reception | eCertify

Dear members and friends,

As the year closes, I would like to thank you for your interest and participation in our programs, panels and networking events.

Our 2017 international programs included Brexit, the European Union’s Future, Agribusiness and Innovation in Ireland, Luxembourg, NAFTA, Vietnam, Indonesia, Portugal, Mid-Market, and International Trends in Business. These brought valuable information and opportunities to connect locally and internationally, and to expand business.

We always like to hear from our members. If you have a brief moment, please click here to answer a five-question survey so we can learn more about your interests. The information will help us develop programming and events.

I would like to wish all of you a holiday season full of peace, joy, love and purpose. I hope to see more of you in 2018.
