Effective Efforts Rely On Funding
All parties benefiting Worldwide ERC®’s program should have a financial commitment to these activities, particularly because the dynamic nature of the employee mobility industry necessitates continual efforts to educate new employees, employers, licensees, counselors, consumers, legislators, regulators, and a range of other stakeholders.

Why Make a Financial Contribution?
Effective Education and Communication
Since its inception, Worldwide ERC® has worked with our constituents in numerous states to communicate the benefits of non-legislative solutions to industry challenges. Without our ability to work with and through these supporters at the local level, the collection of referral fees, as well as employee benefit programs, would have been legislated in a manner that could have had significant impact on relocation or affinity programs and budgets.
Effective education and communication efforts demand sufficient resources. Though membership dues cover part of our government affairs activities, we also must rely on membership contributions to accomplish our goals.
Business Risk Assessment
While our education and communication efforts have been very successful in providing common-sense alternatives to legislation, the likelihood of further legislative efforts remains strong. Rely on Worldwide ERC® to help you stay abreast of the issues, assess the risks certain legislative efforts/legal rulings may pose to your business, and develop educational and communication materials to promote win-win alternatives.
