How Volunteering Can Help You Grow, Improve, and Create

By Mary Vacherweill, Senior Technology Specialist at Faber Daeufer & Itrato PC


I wanted to present myself as articulate and worthy, but also to engage in a useful way. I was intimidated by the enormous brainpower that is ILTA. Perhaps others are hesitant to speak up and come forward to volunteer. Whatever qualms I had about stepping up were exactly working against the engagement level I desired. I learn by doing, and volunteering is no exception.

“For the last several years, I’ve been a part of creating, reviewing, and refining ILTA’s Marketing Technology survey. I’ve really enjoyed the collaborative nature working with a mix of Legal Marketing Tech folks who each bring their own areas of expertise. It’s great being able to connect and work alongside others who are passionate about what we do. Volunteering with ILTA has paved the way for these relationships.

Join the ILTA Family

Catherine S. Hanley, Knowledge Management Lawyer, Sidley Austin


ILTA is a boots on the ground organization and volunteers fill many of the boots! When I joined, it felt like I joined a big family – a big, raucous, plugged-in family, with discussions, debates, activities, and events happening all the time, on every platform and channel! As an ILTA volunteer, I bring ideas and trends to the fore and collaborate with peers on developing and delivering content. There is room for anyone looking to share their perspective. It’s an exciting organization to be involved in and I would recommend volunteering with ILTA to anyone working in legal tech.

read a tip from Heather here




When I started in legal a little over four years ago, I knew from past experience that the best way to learn is through mentoring and online resources. The ILTA online community is the best resource in LegalTech. You to pick the brains of professionals at every level from hundreds of firms. Regardless of the size of a firm, ILTA members are always happy to help and provide the best recommendations and insight. Not only that, there are vendor specific forums where you can hear from them directly. You may even make some friends as I have along the way. We are a community that grows by helping each other. I highly recommend the ILTA communities and getting involved as often as you can!

"I love ILTA forums. The knowledge I have obtained has paid for my membership several times over. I read about things over my head, answer things I have experience with and ask specific questions about things important to my firm. Specifically, I have chosen a backup solution due to ILTA forum suggestions, changed User Rights for security, purchased a Large File Transfer solution also due to ILTA info. I have no doubt our firm has a much more secure environment because of what I have pulled from ILTA forums. Additionally I believe I get a sense of what solutions are good values and save money from that knowledge."

ILTA Member and Chief Administrative Officer at McMahon Surovik Suttle, PC

"ILTA online communities have given me the tools needed to grow as an IT professional in the legal industry. It has allowed me to network with those in different geographic locations and provide me with insights to trends in technology. It is a great resource that I have available to me."

Devin Jaundoo

ILTA Member and Manager, Cloud & Infrastructure Services at Lenczer Slaght Royce Smith Griffin LLP

FOUR REASONS ILTA ONLINE COMMUNITIES ARE IMPORTANT TO MEMBERS.


1. Allows me to network with my peers of similar positions.

2. Gives me the pulse of the legal industry.I’m consistently asked by my executive management team what are other law firms doing and are we using the best of breed of applications.The community forum provides these answers.

3. In certain forums such as Desktop & Application Services, Microsoft –Desktop Applications, iManage, and User Support Services provide first notification of issues as they are happening.

4. When troubleshooting an issue, the community forum is my first place to look sometimes before a google search.
