The advocacy team went to support a policy resolution they cultivated with the help of NACo members which being considered for adoption by the organization.

Casey and Merlene attended two meetings of the Economic & Workforce Development Steering Committee on Friday and Saturday where they networked with county representatives, educated meeting attendees about EB-5, and answered questions of committee members about the Program. On Saturday afternoon, the steering committee unanimously voted in support of the EB-5 resolution, sending it to the NACo Board of Directors for formal adoption at their meeting on Monday, July 13.

This is the third consecutive year that NACo has considered and adopted a policy resolution in support of the EB-5 Regional Center Program. The integral development that EB-5 provides to counties across the country is evident and reflected in the public pronouncement of support by NACo and its members.

NACo promotes EB-5 as an important tool for economic development, public private partnerships, job creation and infrastructure development. NACo also supports EB-5 education at NACo events, coordinated with IIUSA, to educate counties on how the Program can benefit  them.
