Posted on by

Legal Assistant Kia Itzen has been named chairperson of the Facebook page for the Lincoln Legal Professionals Association (LLPA). Her volunteer duties include promoting the LLPA through social media to provide information, offer continuing education opportunities, and also provide inspiration for the 102 people who have liked the page. Examples of topics covered include workplace efficiency, representing employers well to clients, and advocating for clients’ needs.

“My goal in this leadership role is to have the page be more interactive,” Itzen said.  “It’s a resource where associates can have like conversations with peers in our careers, get tips and be inspired as well as find motivation as a professional in the legal field.”
