Celebrating and Advancing the Immigration Profession in America at the 2022 AILA Summer Conference
Our team had a blast at the 2022 AILA Summer Conference from June 15-18!
We were delighted to celebrate AILA’s 75 birthday in the city of her origin, New York. Paul Monson, Dairung Chiang, Gerald Padilla, and Marianella Manzur were on site and very excited to finally greet our partners, client, and competitors in person after a two-year break from live events.
It was an honor to meet with so many immigration lawyers – some long term partners and some new to us – and others in the industry. The energy of the event, surrounded by nearly 3,000 in our niche, was truly contagious as it put back into focus the importance of our work.
Our director of Sales & Marketing, Marianella Manzur, had the privilege to be one of the speakers. She also had the opportunity to gain more knowledge through listening to other immigration professionals.
This conference reminded us all why we are all here–why we are in the immigration industry.
So many meaningful conversations were had with immigration lawyers, service providers, and even our competitors that caused us to reflect. Although we all have a job to do, we all have the same goal: to help people immigrate to the US and live their American dream. We are immigrants working in America, and we feel passionate about solving the same issue and delivering great service in order to help people settle and start their businesses in America.
Through celebrating AILA’s 75 birthday, we were able to reconfirm our belief that we have a valuable space to work in where most importantly we have a chance to help people and make things better.
Thank you AILA for a spectacular return of the live, in-person Annual Conference! And thank you to all in this space. Here’s to the next 75 years of supporting immigration together!
