The AILA Upstate NY chapter annual meeting was held on Friday, June 1, at The Inn on Broadway in Rochester. The event began at 5 pm with an open bar until 6, followed by dinner.
The meeting was preceded by an all-day CLE conference targeted to newer practitioners. Our special guest was Seattle-area immigration lawyer Ally Lozano, who spoke on How to Be the CEO of Your Law Firm. Other panels focused on removal defense, adjustment of status, change of status, and employment-based nonimmigrant visas. Attendance at all sessions earned six NY CLE credits.
Breakfast and lunch were included with the CLE.
The chapter meeting included the election of chapter officers, presentation of the annual Mark Kenmore Mentor Award, and reports to the membership.
