Services from MIE
MIE offers consulting services to the executive directors and managers of programs which provide legal services to the poor.
MIE maintains several listservs for Executive Directors, Fundraisers, Administrators, Managers, and those in Finance roles and DEI roles. This unique communications network among legal services managers enables the community to have robust discussions about common issues, informally share information, documents, and policies that are of interest to managers, ask sensitive questions of and receive candid answers from management level colleagues, and generally permit MIE members to communicate with one another in a secure and safe environment.
Contact us to join one of these active forums where you can ask questions, share tips, celebrate your successes, and provoke discussion among your colleagues in the legal aid community.
MIE's goal is to provide legal aid fundraisers and executive directors with the training, consulting and networking opportunities that you need to increase resources for your program. Gain information, skills and connections with the Fundraisers Forum, Consulting, Custom Training, Library, Recorded Webinars, and our signature event - the National Fundraising Conference.
MIE has served as search consultant to the Boards of Directors of more than a dozen legal aid programs, with budgets ranging in size from $2 million to $20 million.

Search services include consultation with board and staff on values and vision for the organization, qualities and experiences needed in the next executive, compensation review, candidate screening and selection assistance, and post-hire planning.
