The Massachusetts Bar Association is pleased to announce member Judith M. Flynn has won the association's iBelong campaign challenge. The iBelong campaign was established in November 2012 and allows members to share their personal reasons for belonging to the MBA. As the 2013 iBelong winner, Flynn has received a free 2013-14 MBA membership.

See Flynn's winning quote below:

"The whole (of the MBA) is greater than the sum of its parts: there is not really one distinguishing element of the MBA that makes it the valuable resource that it is, but the totality of its many resources. The educational programs, networking, advocacy, publications, member groups, events, etc. The MBA is a great value, providing far more than the annual cost in benefit."

Flynn is the founder of the Elder Law Office of Judith M. Flynn in Rockland, where she specializes in long-term care planning, estate planning, assisted living, crisis planning, special needs planning and conservatorships.

An MBA member since 2003, Flynn joined because of the valuable resources the MBA has to offer. Recently, Flynn has greatly benefited from the numerous MBA educational seminars and resources highlighting changes in the Massachusetts Uniform Probate Code and the Massachusetts Uniform Trust Code.

"The educational programs and networking were most important to me as a new attorney," Flynn said. "The educational programs are just as important to me today (as they were when I started out) since nearly every aspect of my practice area has been affected by significant changes in the laws over the past few years. The On Demand programs are a valuable resource to me as a sole practitioner, allowing me to view programs at my convenience."

In addition, Flynn expressed her appreciation for the MBA's legislative efforts.

"I have been impressed with the legislative advocacy of the various MBA sections, and with their leadership on the fight for adequate funding of our courts. I am just beginning to get more involved with the legislative efforts," Flynn said.

Flynn is currently the president-elect of the Massachusetts Chapter of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys.
