    U.S. immigration policies impact you, your business and family. It is not simply a hot political issue to debate.

    From compliance issues, internship and work visas to green cards and dual-citizenship, we will cover the current topics that affect our personal and business lives, and discuss the future of U.S. immigration.

    If there are specific topics that you would like being addressed, indicate them in the “comment” section of the registration page. Our speaker, Laleh Sharifi, will also be available to answer your questions.

    We hope you will come out for an evening of networking and education!

    The Women's Series is a collaborative initiative of the FrenchNetherlandsGerman and Belgian American Chambers of Commerce as well as the British American Business Council.
    Started in January 2014, the Women's Series holds quarterly business events for professional women of the Atlanta international community. The goal of the Women's Series is to bring educational and stimulating content to our attendees, while facilitating professional opportunities and networking among peers.
