2020 Membership Outreach Calling

Hi, this is __________________ I practice in CITY. I serve on the Board of Governors with the Iowa Association for Justice.

We’re reaching out to IAJ members just to touch base and see if we can be of any assistance. We have our Annual Convention coming up on November 5 & 6. I can tell you more about that in a bit, but how are you doing?

LISTSERVE BENEFITS
There are a couple IAJ membership benefits that are especially helpful right now.
     [SHARE AN ANECDOTE ABOUT WHY YOU FIND THE LISTSERVES HELPFUL]

     [IF LISTSERVE READS: “Not Subscribed to ANY Listserve”]
I see you’re not on any of IAJ’s listserves. You are missing out on one of the best membership benefits we have to offer. Belonging to the listserve is like having a couple hundred experienced trial lawyers right down the hall from you to answer questions, share sample motions or pleadings, or advice on experts or opposing counsel. Would it be OK if IAJ staff followed up with you about joining the listserves? There is no additional cost.

     [IF THEY ARE ALREADY ON ONE OR MORE LISTSERVE]
It looks like you’re subscribed to: [READ OFF THE LISTSERVES TO WHICH THEY SUBSCRIBE.] Are those helpful?

**IF THEY ARE NOT ALREADY A MEMBER OF THE CRIM LAW OR WORK COMP SECTION
Do you do any criminal defense or claimants’ work comp?

[IF YES] IAJ is offering free membership to our criminal law and work comp sections for the rest of the year. Would you like us to subscribe you to one or both of the sections?

[IF NO] IAJ has active sections for both criminal law and workers’ compensation. Keep those in mind if you ever think about getting into those practice areas.

CASE WORKSHOPS
Zoom makes it really easy to take advantage of IAJ’s Case Workshop on Demand for IAJ members. This is your opportunity to workshop a tough case, trial or mediation with an experienced trial lawyer. The IAJ Case Workshops are the perfect format to find focus in your case, bounce ideas, and shape strategy for your trial or mediation - or to decide if this is a case you really want to take. If you’re interested in workshopping a case with a fellow IAJ member you can find all the information you need at IowaJustice.org SLASH Workshop

UPCOMING EVENTS
On November 5 & 6 IAJ is hosting its 47th Annual Convention. For the first time ever, IAJ is offering it online through Zoom. You will be able to see and hear the entire convention, even ask questions of presenters if you want, from your home or office computer. You can find more at IAJ's website: 
IowaJustice.org.

CLOSING QUESTIONS
Regarding CLE, are their any specific topics or presentations that you would want to hear or present that we can pass on to IAJ staff?

     [ASK THIS UNLESS YOU GET THE SENSE THEY’VE ALREADY BEEN HEAVILY INVOLVED, i.e. Past President, Past Board Member, etc.]
Do you see yourself getting more involved in the association in the coming years?

Is there anything else IAJ can do to be of assistance to you right now?

Thanks for your time today. If you ever were to need anything from IAJ feel free to reach out at info@iowajustice.org to reach all staff.

In case the member does not answer.

A voice mail message could sound something like this: Hi, this is __________________ I practice in CITY.

Please don't ever hesitate to contact me, any other board member, or your IAJ staff if we can ever be of any assistance to you or your practice. Also, make sure to mark your calendar for IAJ's Annual Convention coming up on November 5 & 6. You can even attend the convention virtually through Zoom. Have a great day, and thank you for your membership in IAJ.
