In just a few days, I will be heading to Cleveland and Philadelphia, host cities for this year’s Republican National Convention (RNC) and Democratic National Convention (DNC), to carry the message that employment-based immigration reform is one key to strengthening America’s economic future.
I will be joining a larger delegation of SHRM members and staff as we make the broader case for “Creating a 21st Century Workplace.” I will be advocating this public policy platform and, in particular, the importance of creating a workplace that is Competitive.
I will be using my time and energy to make the case to delegates, candidates, members of Congress and opinion makers that immigration, done right, is key to making our employers competitive – and key to making the U.S. economy competitive globally. I will be pressing RNC attendees to consider our perspective before they make decisions on how to reform green cards, H-1Bs or any other critical aspect of immigration law.
You can read more about our plans to carry your message to the RNC next week by reading SHRM Vice President of Government Affairs Mike Aitken’s blog. He also outlines ways you can follow the SHRM/CFGI team in Cleveland and contribute to the conversation. We will be taking our team to Philadelphia the week after to make the case to the Democrats at their convention.
Stay tuned and stay active as we make the case for competitive immigration policies.
