Hello from Vermont!

Lake Champlain

Matt and I traveled up to beautiful Vermont for the annual stakeholder’s event at the Vermont Service Center (VSC) of US Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS). These annual stakeholder events provide a valuable opportunity to meet officers of the VSC and fellow practitioners and discuss immigration issues and topics. (Okay, and also ask about that case that has been pending for way beyond the processing times.) At these stakeholder events, the VSC typically hosts roundtables and informational sessions related to business, family, and student-based immigration case types as well as customer service issues and concerns. The highlight is a tour of the VSC itself, but for security reasons, the VSC doesn't allow photos of their buildings. That's okay, though. This beautiful sunset on Lake Champlain will do!
