FMOn April 7, 2014, MSJDN asked members to register to pay dues for the first time in the organization’s history. After several years of unprecedented growth and success, MSJDN needed funding to continue to increase our reach, expand programs, and transition into a formal professional association.

In order to celebrate this historic occasion for MSJDN, “Founding Member Status” was offered for the first 100 to register. However, the response was so overwhelming that founder status was extended to include all 131 members who registered on April 7!


MSJDN is thankful to all who made the commitment to support our mission to improve the lives of military families. Members are encouraged to share their “Founding Member Status” with the legal community to continue to increase awareness of MSJDN and our efforts.

Dues will be used to offset rising administrative costs, fund broader licensing and advocacy initiatives, and enable MSJDN to provide more quality programming and benefits to members. Military spouse attorneys and supporters are encouraged to register no later than June 30, 2014, in order to continue to receive membership benefits for the following year.
