    As the U.S. workforce continues to age, the skills gap continues to widen, and the talent market becomes increasingly global, U.S. organizations must compete to hire and retain top talent.

    With nearly 40 years of combined immigration experience, our speakers, Stacy A. Simon, Esq. and Lin R. Walker, Esq., are uniquely qualified to guide us through the seemingly ever-changing and complex world of immigration law. Attendees will leave with a comprehensive understanding of each layer of immigration law including: non-immigration and Visa categories; compliant documentation; current trends and hot topics within the HR and global community; and how to ultimately bring the best and brightest to the U.S. through creative Visa options.
