Monthly Lunch Meetings:
CVM-PDA cordially invites you to join us for our Sept Lunch Meeting on 9/25 (Wed), noon (lunch served from 11.45 am onwards), in room VMTH 101.
We will have our guest speakers, Erin Pope & Shilpa Hegde, Immigration Coordinators at TAMU’s Immigration Services for Faculty and Scholars (ISFS). Ms. Pope will unlock the door for many important rooms related to immigration issues, visa types, the difference between visa and status, and many more issues that are interesting in the ever challenging issue of immigration in the US.
“Erin Pope is the Senior Immigration Coordinator and Shilpa Hegde is the Immigration Coordinator with Immigration Services for Faculty and Scholars office. Pope has been with this office for 22 years, and Shilpa has been with ISFS for 14 years.
ISFS is responsible filing nonimmigrant petitions to obtain or extend H-1B, TN, E-3, and O-1 statuses for employees. They also file employment-based immigrant petitions toward permanent residence.”
Please RSVP for lunch. Additionally, since we had more questions than time to answer them in our last sharing session with Erin and Shilpa, we would like to invite YOU to submit any questions pertaining to immigration. You can do so via the RSVP link or email CVMpostdoc@cvm.tamu.edu directly. This will help our speakers to cater the talk to your needs and to get the most updated answers.
We look forward to seeing you there!
If there is a topic or presenter you are particularly interested in hearing about or from please email us at CVMPostDoc@cvm.tamu.edu
Food and some drinks will be provided free. Drinks will be sponsored by the generous support of Promega.
For those attending, Promega is also holding a raffle where you can win 1000USD worth of Promega product(s) free of charge.
