Texas is home to 4.7 million immigrants who are driving innovation, creating American jobs, fighting on the front lines of the pandemic, and boosting economic growth. Texas businesses and elected officials are committed to working together on immigration reform for the benefit of all Texans.

To discuss this important topic and immigration solutions at the federal and state levels that benefit Texas communities and the economy, we are excited to announce the Texas Immigration Webinar Series presented by FWD.us.

This four-part virtual seminar series will begin on November 18 and feature discussions between elected officials from both sides of the aisle, business and civic leaders, and immigration experts on the impact of immigration to the business community and economy, in Texas and nationally.

Speakers:

  • Brett Perlman, CEO, Center for Houston’s Future
  • Aaron Cox, Interim CEO and Senior Vice President, Texas Association of Business
  • Chris Wallace, President & CEO, North Texas Commission
  • Melissa Stewart, Executive Director, Greater Houston Restaurant Association
