At the luncheon, Iowa Legal Aid Executive Director Dennis Groenenboom accepted the NLADA's Innovations in Equal Justice Award on behalf of his program. The annual award recognizes the successful use of technology to better serve the low-income community. Iowa Legal Aid has long been a leader in the use of technology, pioneering the use of a statewide web-based case management system, launching a project to place internet-connected computers in senior citizen centers, and launching a statewide legal assistance web site in 2003.
