The Seasonal Employment Alliance will be hosting our inaugural Annual Meeting June 6th and 7th in Chicago, IL. The meeting will be taking place at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare Hotel and Conference Center. The meeting presents an excellent opportunity to engage with other active H-2B program participants and give your input into our short-term and long-term strategies.
The meeting is going to be jammed packed with interesting, informative and entertaining talks, presentations, discussions and panels. In addition to our meeting we have also set up a fun and casual fundraising event at Top Golf the night of the 6th. The cost of the ticket includes two hours of play and dinner (there will be a cash bar available) and all proceeds will go to the SEA general fund.
