Doing Business in the United States:
What You Need to Know
The OWIT Virtual Chapter presents its latest OWIT member highlight and discussion event. This month, our discussion will focus on what individuals and entities need to know when doing business in the United States. After our featured members speak, we'll ask participants to introduce themselves and discuss their personal background and experiences in doing business in the United States. We hope that this event allows participants to network and make connections among OWIT virtual and chapter members! This event is free to current OWIT members (both virtual and chapter members). The event will last one hour.
Our featured speakers will be Audrey Glover-Dichter and Deirdre D. Nero. Audrey Glover-Dichter will present on the topic of U.S. advertising, marketing, and promotions law. Deirdre D. Nero will present on the topic of U.S. immigration law.
