Arts Staff Advocates For Foreign National Visiting Artists

Allison Coyne Carroll (staff, MCFA) spends her free time advocating for simpler immigration and taxation policies for foreign national visiting artists. Allison attended Arts Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill in March 2009, and met with Senator Leahy (who is also Chairman of the Appropriations Subcommittee on State and Foreign Operations) to champion for improved visa processing, and ensure Middlebury can continue to present premiere performers from around the globe.
