Weston, Florida)– On Thursday, March 30th, the Broward Professional Alliance will hold a free workshop in Weston called “I’m Here, Now What?” a faceto-face encounter with experts who will give strategic advice to foreign national professionals for making a successful transition to the United States. Attendees will be able to learn about changes in immigration laws, implications of the U.S. Patriot Act, taxation issues, real estate investment rules, and how to avoid scams.

“So many foreign nationals come to the United States, and specifically here in South Florida, expecting to do business the way they did back in their native countries, but when they get here, they find out in many cases, it’s a lot different than they had expected,” said Keil Hackley, an immigration attorney and member of the Broward Professional Alliance. “Our goal is to give out timely information to these people and help them smooth out the transition.” Four experts in the area of immigration law, taxation, real estate and finance will make presentations and answer questions.

The program will be held at Weston Hills Country Club located at 2600 Country Club Way, Weston, Florida. Cocktails and networking begin at 5:30 P.M. and the presentations begin at 6:00 P.M. Comerica Bank is sponsoring the event. Anyone wishing to attend must RSVP by calling 954-349-4994.
