This conference is by invitation only.

An opportunity for staff of U.S. Members of Congress, this 5-day seminar will provide a programmatic overview of the immigration system, in-depth procedural information about immigration laws and case processing, and information on how the U.S. government documents U.S. citizenship and provides assistance to U.S. citizens abroad. 

The seminars cover topics related to immigration casework,  family-based immigration, inter-country adoptions, and immigrant investor visa policy and process, among others.

Subject matter experts from USCIS, DOS/CA, ICE, CBP, USCG, and DOJ/EOIR will present together to provide a complete overview of immigration-related topics. Congressional staff will have an opportunity to discuss these topics and strengthen relationships as we work together on consular and immigration-related matters to serve the public.
