Volunteer

VOLUNTEER


ILTA fosters, relies on and celebrates volunteers for their real-world experiences and their value as a resource for colleagues.

Volunteerism takes on many forms

And ranges from something as simple as sharing an idea in one of the community discussion groups to leadership roles in one of the organization’s core programming delivery teams. The opportunities ILTA provides can deliver great benefits to both individual volunteers and their firms/organizations.

  If your primary market is sales to the legal vertical, you'll benefit from our vendor opportunities.

Volunteer Positions

The Board of Directors (BOD) has authority and responsibility for the governance of ILTA. The Board establishes policy and monitors implementation of policy by ILTA’s staff under the direction of the Executive Director. The BOD does not manage the business affairs of the organization, but may be called upon by the Executive Director for review of particular business matter decisions as warranted.
The Program Planning Council is an appointed team of volunteers responsible for delivering ILTA's programming framework. The Program Planning Council comprises subject-matter experts in various areas of disciplines, representatives from our conference planning teams and representatives who focus on our law firm and law department members' needs at local and international levels.
A Content Coordinating Team member will review the specific areas of focus, target audiences, deliverable numbers and topics that fall under their area of discipline. The team develops programming deliverables for law firm, law department, local and international audiences and directs deliverables to be executed by Project Teams.
The Relationship Coordinating Team selects and mentors volunteers that focus on supporting and meeting the needs of our members at a local level (both firm and law department members). They also help foster the relationship members have with the association.
Knowledge Advisors 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 deliverables 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.
The Talent Council is a standing committee tasked with the ongoing development of leaders within the organization through programming, coaching and mentoring efforts aimed at helping individuals develop the knowledge, skills and attributes needed to serve as an effective leader and, if applicable, Board member. During the biennial election process, the Talent Council solicits nominations, vets all potential candidates and prepares for the Board its recommended slate of seven individuals and their roles.
The responsibility of the Strategic Relationship Liaison (SRL) is to develop and maintain a strong relationship with their assigned key strategic vendor by providing effective, regular communications between the key strategic vendor, volunteer leaders, the association and its membership. We currently have an SRL opening for Thomson Reuters, Practice of Law.
