Event Description

OVERVIEW

How to File an FOIA or PA Request for Information within the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS).  These include the following agencies within DHS: ICE, USCIS, and CBP.  

How and Where to File Your FOIA or PA request for Information Held by Other Agencies.  These include the IRS, the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR), federal criminal law-enforcement agencies, and state law enforcement agencies. 

WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND

Convenience. You can participate in our FOIA webinar from a location of your choosing – your home, your office, or a client/customer location are all perfectly suitable for learning in a webinar environment. All you need is a high-speed Internet connection and a PC or a Mac from which to sign on to the webinar.

Focused Learning. You will receive an in-depth treatment of a very important topic that that specifically interests you -- or your business or boss.

Time Savings. There is no need to travel to participate in our FOIA webinar.  you save valuable time in your busy schedule. Additionally, as identified above, our FOIA webinar is a focused learning opportunity. The webinar is relevant to your situation.

Cost. Our FOIA costs a lot less than an equivalent traditional seminar or conference session. Further, because you do not travel to participate in our webinar, you save those costs also.

No Exam Required. You are not required to pass a final exam. Instead of worrying about passing a test, you can actually learn in comfort.  No stress.

Q & A.  You will have the opportunity to ask questions about the FOIA.  It is very nice to receive answers about  what interests -- or bothers -- you.
