Industry Professional Referral Organizations (IPROs)
Industry Professional Referral Organizations, or IPROs, connect Thai La Son LLC to technical experts from all major development industry sectors. IPROs refer industry-specific technical experts to work with Thai La Son LLC on all technical aspects of international development projects, including the definitional missions and feasibility studies. The IPROs also play a role in developing project strategies and informing project clients about viable project solutions. Additionally, IPROs provide sources for Existing Project Models (EPMs), which are active, operating facilities that use technology similar to the technology that Thai La Son LLC is exploring for any given project.
IPRO represent their industry in global development projects facilitated by Thai La Son LLC. IPRO candidates must have expert knowledge of their industry and an extensive network of industry contacts. As experts in their fields, IPROs have the perfect opportunity to consult on development projects around the world, identify opportunities for their industry in global development, and promote the involvement of businesses, associations, and professionals within their sectors.
Thai La Son LLC has two approaches to IPRO recruitment: approach an existing non-profit entity with a similar mission, or help the candidate create a new non-profit entity that embodies the mission of the IPRO for their industry and that of Thai La Son LLC as a whole. Thai La Son LLC looks for IPRO candidates both in the U.S. and internationally. To find suitable IPRO candidates, Thai La Son LLC seeks help from trade associations, professional associations, educational organizations, U.S. Commercial Service Export Assistance Centers, the U.S. Trade and Development Agency, the Small Business Administration, and other sources.
