We are accepting Certified Relocation Professional applications!
Actions taken by various governments around the world can be directly and indirectly disruptive to talent mobility. For this reason, Worldwide ERC® has gathered together a formidable group of professionals from all walks of the industry to identify such activities and, when necessary, advocate for beneficial outcomes.
Taking on this important responsibility – and deserving of appreciation – for 2020 are the nine members of the Government Affairs Committee , which reports to and advises the Worldwide ERC® board of directors on policy matters. The Committee oversees the work of the five Worldwide ERC® Government Affairs forums whose leaders also volunteer their time to ensure Worldwide ERC® is on top of issues impacting our industry. Each of the forums have a different focus and meet at Worldwide ERC®’s U.S. meetings with the leaders convening for monthly conference calls.
