Welcome to LITA, Chrishelle Thomas!

LITA Blog - Thu, 2019-09-19 12:35

Please help me welcome Chrishelle Thomas as LITA’s new Membership and Marketing Manager.

She comes to us from C200, a nonprofit that connects women from the highest levels of successful public and private companies, where she was the Member Services and Programs Administrator. Before that, she was with the American Bar Association for over a decade, serving as their Membership & Events Coordinator and then as their Membership & Marketing Specialist. She has a wealth of experience supporting recruitment and retention campaigns, online community engagement, and digital marketing communications. High-level customer service with a “can do” spirit is one of the greatest attributes she acquired during her tenure at the American Bar Association.

Chrishelle is a certified dance coach and a faith and fashion blogger, encouraging people to become the best version of themselves. She enjoys podcasts, roller skating, and hanging out with her yorkipoo, Mr. Mixx Saint Charles. She holds a BA in Merchandise Management from the International Academy of Design & Technology.

Chrishelle’s pronouns are she/her/hers. Her email address is cthomas@ala.org, and her direct phone number is 312-280-4268. She will be taking over as the staff liaison for the Communications and Marketing and Membership Development committees, although she’ll also be working with each of our groups to promote and market all of teams’ great work.

Welcome to LITA, Chrishelle!

I also want to thank Mark Beatty, who officially retired at the end of August, for his time and commitment as a LITA staff member. Please contact me with any questions or requests you would have sent to him.
