Why is ILTA a success?
Many things tell us that ILTA is a successful organization, including an ever-growing membership base; increasingly bigger and better annual conferences; more meetings, webinars and other peer networking opportunities; a greater number of white papers and surveys each year and more volunteer authors — and let us not overlook our amazingly solid financial underpinning, especially noteworthy considering these rough-and-tumble economic times.

What makes ILTA so successful?
Is it great people? Hard work? Unique benefits and services? Luck, maybe? Well yes, all these things, but it's something else, too — something that's harder to quantify and yet more important to recognize: our Core Values. Simply put, these are the beliefs and behaviors that inform everything we are and do as an organization, both among ourselves and to the outside world.

In the hustle and bustle of our work with ILTA, we think it's important to stop occasionally and review these values, reflect on them, renew our dedication to them. For if each of us does this, it's as certain as almost anything can be that the success we've enjoyed in the past will continue into the future.

Core Values:

  • Respect our colleagues
  • Commit to the highest standards of professionalism
  • Provide unbiased and accurate information
  • Maintain the highest ethical standards
  • Nurture skills and talents to promote lifelong learning
  • Develop and enhance strategic relationships
  • Provide opportunities to celebrate volunteers and maximize their value to foster a trusted resource community

The perfect way to conclude this message is to remind you of our Statement of Purpose: ILTA provides the premier environment for peer connections, education and collective intelligence to leverage the strategic advantages of technology in the legal profession.
