members work as part of a team to develop the educational program for our major conferences. They are guided by the goals and framework established for each event.
Role Archetype: Innovator
are big thinkers who bring an entrepreneurial, visionary mindset to the development of “hot themes” — those overarching, critical concepts — that can be explored and developed into programming by ILTA’s Program Planning Council. Their creative process is unconstrained and fluid, and they are one of many resources to inform the development of ILTA’s deliverables.
Role Archetype: Partner
In their work with our strategic vendors, our Strategic Relationship Liaisons
advocate for our members when issues arise with products; they facilitate vendor connections to support educational and product programming; they provide feedback from our members in future product/service development; and they ensure that ILTA is involved in standard-setting initiatives.
Role Archetype: Advocate
provide and enhance value to our law firm and law department members by focusing on all ILTA opportunities for member relationships, education and collaboration. Member Liaisons are charged with assisting members with building relationships with each other and the organization, and to act as an advocate on behalf of the membership to the organization.
Project Team Members
Role Archetype: Doer
Project Teams will be assembled as needs arise. Some project teams will have a singular focus and dissolve once their deliverable is complete, while others may be scoped to extend over a longer period with multiple goals. We align specific project needs with talent and expertise.
