Join us for the 2024 AILA Spring CLE Conference and Webcast to get an insider’s view of what is happening at the government agencies. This conference provides a unique opportunity to hear directly from agency leadership and representatives of the Biden Administration. Agency officials and AILA liaison committees will discuss the latest regulatory and policy initiatives affecting your practice and clients. You’ll also learn about current trends, issues in agency adjudications, and potential future changes. Don’t miss it!

Viewing Options: On Thursday and Friday, March 21 and 22, 2024, faculty members will present live sessions at the Grand Hyatt Washington. Thursday sessions can be attended in-person or via recording after the conference. Please note that a live webcast is not available for Thursday’s sessions, but Thursday’s session recordings will be included for webcast participants to access after the conference. Friday sessions can be attended in-person, via live webcast, and recording from the convenience of your home or office. All registrants will be given a link to the entire set of conference recordings, so any sessions missed (particularly helpful for our West Coast participants given the time difference) can be revisited later.

Note: AILA’s 2024 National Day of Action (NDA) also will be held on Thursday, March 21, 2024. As a result, some portions of the conference may overlap with NDA schedules. Separate registration for NDA is required.
