Iowa Association for Justice (IAJ) is looking for an Events & Membership Professional to join our staff team in Des Moines, IA.

It offers an excellent opportunity to take on wide ranging responsibilities in the areas of membership development, event planning and meeting coordination, marketing communications and, most crucially, planning and oversight of the Association’s high caliber and widely celebrated trial practice seminars.
The Association’s trial practice seminars combine the abundant knowledge and expertise of Association members with that of high-powered trial attorneys and jury consultants from across the USA, in order to steep Iowa trial lawyers in cutting edge trial advocacy strategies and techniques. The events and membership professional gets to work with some of the most talented (and famous) trial lawyers in the state and country.
