The Maryland Association for Justice (MAJ) is pleased to announce that its Board of Governors has unanimously approved a transition in leadership at the association. Alison Dodge, who has been serving as MAJ’s Interim Executive Director since May, will become Executive Director, effective immediately.

Ms. Dodge is an experienced association professional who has been with MAJ for four years, previously as Director of Membership and Communications. Since joining MAJ in 2013, Ms. Dodge has advanced numerous organizational initiatives, including expanding member services, improving communications, and diligently working with MAJ’s volunteer Sections and Committees to move the organization forward.

 “The Board has been thoroughly impressed by the confidence, passion, and leadership Alison has shown at MAJ,” said Elisha Hawk, MAJ President. “As we celebrate our 63rd anniversary as an organization dedicated to improving the civil justice system, we look forward to working with Alison to advocate for the values upon which MAJ was founded.”

Before joining MAJ, Alison served as Director of Communications and Membership for Maryland Nonprofits, as well as in leadership roles at the Community Foundation of Howard County and Jewish Community Services. She is an active member of the National Association of Trial Lawyers Executives and the American Society of Association Executives. Alison has become known for her poise, her dedication to forwarding MAJ’s mission, and her ability to successfully communicate and work with MAJ’s donors, sponsors, and members across the state. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from the University of Maryland Baltimore County.

On behalf of the officers, board of governors and staff, we are all looking forward to this new chapter in MAJ’s rich history.
