IIUSA Hosts Portion of 82nd Annual Conference of Mayors

The Conference of Mayors held its 82nd annual conference at the OMNI Dallas Hotel. The conference lasted from June 20th-23rd and included plenary sessions, committee meetings, task force meetings, social events, and workshops. The conference was open to all mayors and other officially-registered attendees. View the entire meeting agenda here.

Nestled atop the roof of the newly constructed EB-5-funded NYLO Hotel, IIUSA hosted the reception portion of the event. IIUSA has dedicated itself to collaborating with organizations that have a public mission that aligns with its own interest.

According to IIUSA, “Following a 2012 resolution in support of permanent authorization of the EB-5 Regional Center Program, in June 2013 the U.S. Conference of Mayors adopted a resolution in favor the EB-5 Program affirming, “The United States Conference of Mayors urges Congress to include a robust EB5 program in the immigration bill including additional visas, permanent authorization of the regional center program and streamlined approvals for all applications.” The section on EB-5 of the adopted resolutions document begins on page 69, which can be viewed here

IIUSA and The Conference of Mayors look forward to another successful conference in 2015.
