2018 AILA Spring CLE Conference: Government Relations Update

Join us at the AILA Spring Conference to receive an insider’s view of what is happening at the agencies from the AILA Liaison Committees. Learn about the latest issues, policy changes, and hot topics in agency adjudications, and receive a summary of the most recent liaison meeting discussions. Also new this year, hear directly from the government officials whose decisions affect your practice and clients during our “Conversation with the Agencies.” These keynote discussions provide an opportunity for attendees to hear one-on-one conversations about the agencies priorities for the year. The conference will wrap-up with a panel on creative solutions for attorneys practicing in this challenging environment.

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