An active member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) I participate regularly on discussion panels at national and regional AILA conferences. I am also a charter member of AILA’s Rome District Chapter (RDC) , which serves a growing number of US attorneys with consular processing practices in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, as well as in the United States, and am a member of the Bangkok District Chapter. Within the RDC I have served as Secretary, Treasurer, Vice Chair, and Chair, and am an active participant and lecturer at the RDC’s two annual conferences.
As RDC Chapter Chair I served on the AILA Board of Governors from 2012 to 2013. I served for five years on AILA’s Department of State Liaison Committee and currently serve on AILA”s Business Immigration Reaction Team (BIRT).
