Meet the 2018 Ambassador of the Year

The 2018 Ambassador of the Year award recipient is Katelyn Hufe. Katelyn has been an AILA member since 2011 and has served as her chapter’s Ambassador since 2014. She has worked tirelessly to promote the Council’s work within her chapter and hosted two dynamic fundraising events in Philadelphia in support of the Council. She is also a dedicated mentor offering her support to other AILA members and serves on AILA’s Pro Bono Committee.

Katelyn is a partner at Gian-Grasso, Tomczak, & Hufe, P.C. Her practice focuses on deportation defense, litigation, appeals, and protecting clients with final orders of removal. She also serves as an adjunct professor of Law at Drexel University, where she is helping to train the next generation of immigration attorneys.

About the Program

Ambassadors are essential in maintaining a strong relationship with the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) community and expanding the American Immigration Council’s reach among the diverse Chapters. Made up of AILA members from each Chapter, Ambassadors engage and inform their colleagues and their local community about the mission of the Council by:

  • Educating fellow members about the resources the Council has to offer in order to develop their practice;
  • Informing the Council of current immigration issues and news that are important within their AILA Chapter and community; and
  • Fostering new and creative ways for the Council and the AILA community to work together.

Through the American Immigration Council’s “Ambassador of the Year” award, we recognize Council Ambassadors who have gone above and beyond and have demonstrated extraordinary dedication, involvement and initiative to enhancing the partnership between their AILA Chapter and the American Immigration Council, AILA’s non-profit partner.
