Our mission is to educate, network, and create a cohesive membership throughout the jurisdiction. The Chapter hosts a variety of web seminars and live conferences dealing with regional and international issues. We also hold in-person and telephonic general membership and committee meetings, offer education in substantive, procedural, and practice matters, while addressing issues which are important to the Chapter’s members. The Chapter also arranges tours and visits to Consular and DHS offices located within the Chapter’s jurisdiction. The Chapter develops relationships and disseminates appropriate AILA information to officials in these offices, while keeping AILA and Chapter members informed, in “real-time,” of changes in government policies and practices. And of great importance, the Chapter serves as a resource for its members to know, mentor, and network with one another, whether far or near.
