It is going to take both unprecedented resources and engagement in the political system by EB-5 Regional Center industry stakeholders to get through the fast approaching “sunset date” of September 30 for the Program. IIUSA estimates that over the next year, approximately $1M will be needed for IIUSA advocacy operations that include outside lobbying and public affairs counsel and activities. This is what it takes ensure the EB-5 Regional Center Program not only continues, but also has opportunity for sustainable growth in the years ahead.
In order to rise to the challenge, IIUSA is pleased to rollout an enhanced referral program that rewards cash contributions and new member and/or fund contribution referrals towards enhanced membership categories. You now can become a Program Champion, through April 2017 at whatever level possible by referring or directly contributing funds commensurate with the total amount. Annual, semi-annual, quarterly, bi-monthly, and/or monthly payment plans are available with credits (15%) or rebates (10%) on amount contributed by October 2016 built in as an extra incentive
Now you have the opportunity to be recognized as an IIUSA Program Champion – in addition to earning up to 50% off membership dues – for referring partners, clients or other EB-5 industry participants who are not yet IIUSA Members to join the association. For example, to reach the President’s Advisory Council ($30,000 contribution) a company can now allocate referral credits to cover portions that they do not pay themselves.
