Allen Orr for AILA Director

After more than a decade of membership, I seek to share my time, talent and tender with our treasure the American Immigration Lawyers Association.

I have held various positions within our organization, edited numerous articles and spoken at various conferences around the country. And while I think my history adds to the reason I would like to serve, it is my desire and passion for the organization which should make me stand out. Last year, I received the highest honor from the American Immigration Lawyers Association the Joseph Minsky Young Lawyer Award for contributions made in the immigration field and my work with the Young Lawyers Division.

It is my desire to continue to return to the organization the investment that it has made in my career and in my service, which has molded me to be the immigration attorney that I am today. Most importantly, as our organization looks forward, we should model our membership in diversity, talents and background. My addition to the board will help us move forward in that direction in ensuring there is a place at the table for all interest within our organization and that succession planning is taking place.

I have over ten years of experience serving to legal bar board. Last year I served as Co-President Of Gaylaw's Board prior to that position I was the Treasurer for 6 years. During my tenure on Gaylaw , the board achieved a full year of revenue in reserves and expanded our legal programs.
