SEA Spring Labor Forum, 9 AM – 2 PM

  • Northern Triangle- By the time of this meeting, we will be able to assess the effect of the reforms made by Northern Triangle governments and U.S. consulates on processing times. With a significant NT allocation expected for the second half release, this information will be invaluable to employers who are considering, often out of necessity, bringing in NT workers.
  • DOL Processing Issues- DOL’s inability to process applications in a timely manner, if unresolved, will render the program unworkable. We will present our plan for rectifying this issue before the FY 23 second half filing season.
  • Legislative/Cap Relief Strategy Session- We were unsuccessful in obtaining a Returning Worker Exemption in the FY22 omnibus but our efforts to secure an RWE, including our protracted negotiations with the unions, put us in a favorable position to obtain a deal that secure long-term cap relief.
  • Administration update- Gary Merson, Director of Mobility Pathways, National Security Council, will provide an update on a potential second half visa release and on the Northern Triangle Initiative.
  • PAC- Discussion of PAC strategy for remainder of FY 22 and FY 23. Set PAC budget and determine members of Congress to prioritize/target
  • SEA Foundation- Plan presented for SEA 501 (c)(3), mission, vision etc.
