AILA Ambassador Program

For Attorneys

AILA Ambassador Program

To enhance communication between the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) Chapters and the American Immigration Council, the Council created the Ambassador Program. Made up of AILA members from each Chapter, these Ambassadors help the Immigration Council share information, promote its events, distribute their research, and take the lead on community relation projects, among other tasks.

For more information on the Ambassador Program, contact Claudia Ornelas at cornelas (at) immcouncil.org.
