Indianapolis, Indiana (PRWEB) January 02, 2016
The Indiana Trial Lawyers Association (ITLA) announced that starting January 1, 2016, Jason Bell will become Executive Director.
Bell, who has been with the organization since 2000, has most recently held the position of Chief Financial Officer and Deputy Director. A graduate of Indiana State University, he is looking forward to leading and growing the organization in coming years.
"We represent the most skilled attorneys in the state," Bell says. "I am proud to represent this organization and will continue to fight to preserve the role of the courts in protecting the safety of Hoosier families."
Current Executive Director Micki Wilson will remain on staff as Senior Policy Adviser, keeping her almost 40 years of institutional knowledge available to the staff and members of ITLA.
"Jason understands the challenges of running a large not-for-profit organization," she said. "He’s been instrumental in the growth of this association over the last fifteen years and I am confident he will continue to be a steadfast steward of civil justice."
An open house to introduce Bell and the ITLA staff will be held on January 6, from 11am-2pm in the 2nd floor conference center at 150 West Market Street in Indianapolis.
The Indiana Trial Lawyers Association is dedicated to the constitutional rights of open access to the courts and equal protection under the law for all persons in Indiana. The organization provides continuing legal education and amicus representation, and advocates for the association’s nearly 1,000 members at the Indiana General Assembly.
