Dallas/Fort Worth Chapter: An Introduction
An introduction to the FEM Dallas/Fort Worth Chapter
The Dallas/Fort Worth Chapter was founded in 2010. Its general aim is to provide an opportunity, and a forum, for mobility professionals to learn about current issues and industry trends from peers and subject matter experts.
The Dallas/Fort Worth Chapter is headed by Cara Butler, Vice President, Client Development with Going-there Global Destination Services. Our chapter has quarterly meetings where we discuss such issues as tax and immigration updates, duty of care, payroll, best practices and more. Attendees range from global mobility analysts to senior level management.
Our first meeting this year addressed the differences between global employment companies (GECs) and global outsourcing companies, and the benefits and solutions both offer Global Mobility programs. The following meeting discussed what key process areas should be considered when developing a program aimed at ensuring the safety, security and well-being of employees around the globe. Attendees gained insight into best practices adopted by others that can be instrumental in responding to a crisis but potentially avoiding a crisis.
Those who may be interested in joining the Dallas/Fort Worth Chapter or attending an upcoming event are welcome to contact Cara Butler for more information.
