By the time of this conference, the elections will be over and the results just may make you want to flee to a tropical island. If that’s the case, we’ve got just the thing for you! Whether it is to get away and soak up the sun for a bit or find a permanent home, the AILA Midwinter Conference in St. Maarten will provide you with advanced-level, thought-provoking issues and solutions to wrap your mind around and help get it off politics, all in an island setting. Because a new presidential administration will take over in January, representing employers and defending clients facing removal is going to require some reevaluation, a lot of creativity, and as much informed and zealous advocacy as you can muster. So pick up that umbrella drink and allow the advanced-level business and removal tracks at the AILA Midwinter Conference to give you the tropical zing you need to do the best you possibly can for your clients in the coming year.

Your registration includes admission to CLE Sessions, an electronic copy of the conference handbook, opportunities to network, and a copy of the attendee list.
