from the president I have the great fortune and pleasure in my role as ILTA's president to attend conferences produced by some of our sister organizations. This allows me to gain further understanding of the legal arena beyond the "traditional" IT focus. As I connect the dots from various events, the recurring theme is that firms focusing on cross-department collaboration and building knowledgeable support teams are the ones that have great opportunity for competitive advantage and improved client service delivery. Integrated support teams provide lawyers with a deeper and broader tool kit, allowing more expansive offerings to clients. But many of us don't always have the opportunity to interact with and learn from our co-workers in other departments/ groups. That's where ILTA can help. With the continually developing pool of multi discipline expertise that comprises ILTA, we have both the means and the opportunity to provide our membership with cross-departmental education in numerous ways. As this edition of Peer to Peer highlights, Law Firm 101 is our educational program focusing on a fuller understanding of the business and operations of our firms, helping us all become better equipped to increase our support values and offerings. As we develop the program plans and begin curriculum design, we'll call upon many of you to share your expertise, making the legal community an even better place to be. And if you have a specific area of expertise that we haven't tapped into yet, let us know. The ILTA community is as valuable as it is because of those willing to contribute to our collective knowledge bank. I wish you all a safe holiday season and a prosperous year ahead!
