Brown for AILA Board of Governors Campaign Statement


Alan Lee, Esq.

NOTE FROM OCRA, Sarah’s dog:

Sarah Z. Brown practices with Miley & Brown in Dallas. She graduated with her B.A. from Louisiana State University in 1973, then attended the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center achieving an M.S. in 1975, and following with her J.D. from the University of Oklahoma College of Law graduating with honors in 1991. She is Board Certified in Immigration and Nationality Law, Texas Board of Legal Specialization. After serving as the Texas Chapter Chair of AILA, Sarah was elected to AILA’s Board of Governors serving in the capacity for two consecutive terms.

Since 1996, she has attended each Board of Governors meeting for AILA with the exception of the spring meeting in 2008. She sat on the BOG as the Chair of the Texas Chapter one year, and subsequent to that year, she served two terms as an Elected Director of AILA’s BOG. Her reasons for running again are simple: AILA is enormously important to her law practice and she wants very much to be a part of the leadership and donate her time to making the organization continue to work for each of its members. Also, although the economy seems to be gathering some strength, she believes that AILA needs to continue to be a strong voice in the debate on immigration. She does not speak frequently at BOG meetings…it is more her style to listen and not be redundant to what other Board members have said, but when she think she has something fruitful and useful to add, she speaks for AILA’s members. AILA is vital to her career and she wants to continue to keep AILA strong.
