Meet The SWA Chiefs - Outstanding Event In Labor Certs

For the first time ever, the four SWAs where the largest number of labor certifications are filed - California, Texas, New York and Florida - will speak before a national audience. These four SWAs put together receive almost half the labor certification applications filed in the US, and this notable occasion will bring them together in a telephonic seminar broadcast nationwide to labor cert practitioners. In addition to the SWA chiefs, two prevailing wage experts are on the speaker roster which also includes several labor certification luminaries. Here is the speaker round-up for this memorable happening.

  • SWA Chiefs: Deborah Cusimano (CA), David J. Mance (NY), Richard Souder (TX), Sandra Stafford (FL)
  • Prevailing Wage Analysts: Jeneace O'Brien (CA), Danny Romans (FL)
  • Distinguished Practitioners: Angelo A. Paparelli, Jonathan C. Adams, Lawrence D. Bastone, Rebecca P. Burdette, Josie Gonzalez, Catherine L. Haight, Joel Stewart
Even the proposed PERM rule contemplates that the SWA role in prevailing wages will continue. And as the PERM interim final rule remains "always coming but never really arriving", the SWAs' central role in the labor certification process is likely to be with us for some time to come. Everyone involved in labor certs will benefit by being part of this unique seminar series. The seminar is offered by phone, so law offices around the country can participate. It is also a great training tool for the entire law firm staff (one registration covers everyone sharing a speakerphone). The seminar includes an in-depth Q&A period where you can pose questions regarding your cases to the SWA representatives and distinguished practitioners on the panel. The deadline to register is Monday, February 23rd. For more info, including detailed curriculum, speaker bios, and registration information, see: (Fax version:
