14th Annual Convening
Date: Wednesday May 18, 2011 to Friday May 20, 2011
Every year CLINIC hosts a three day convening for its affiliates, staff, and other nonprofit immigration programs. Cognizant of the economic challenges facing nonprofits and many organizations, CLINIC has kept registration fees for its 2011 Annual Convening at the same level as 2010. But attendees can expect even higher quality of trainings and workshops, including excellent updates on immigration law and opportunities for staff of nonprofit immigration programs, private attorneys as well as immigration program directors to network and learn from some of the nation's top immigration law experts.
Learn new strategies for fundraising, program management, as well as advocating on behalf of immigrants at CLINIC's Annual Convening.
