"Immigration and the Public Sector" is presented by the Bob Ramsey Executive Education Program at Arizona State University. The Ramsey Executive Education Program
has served public sector clients from international, federal, state, county, municipal and tribal government for the past 25 years.
Every day headlines tell the story about the rapidly changing dynamics brought about by today's immigration issues.
This September, over 200 public decision-makers, immigration experts and senior academic leaders will gather in Phoenix for this major regional conference to address
the questions and implications brought about by immigration in the Southwest.
From policy debates at the local, state and national levels to how the public sector struggles to keep pace with these changes, immigration is having it most
significant and lasting impact in the Southwest United States.
This conference will serve as a bridge between immigration policy and practice. Plenary sessions given by nationally recognized immigration experts will paint a
broad picture of current policy initiatives, while break-out sessions will provide a venue for engaging conversations about the challenges of how these issues play
out in communities - in public health and safety, social welfare, infrastructure and other important issues.
The event provides a forum for lively and engaging discussion by decision-makers who face daily decisions involving immigration and to share research, experiences and
diverse perspectives on the impact of immigration on the public sector.
