logoIt’s that time of year again! Military Spouse JD Network’s Annual Reception will take place Wednesday, May 6, 2015, in Washington, D.C. The Annual Reception will be held at the historic Army Navy Club, 901 17th Street Northwest, from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM.

Our yearly celebration brings the legal, military, and business communities together to celebrate YOU – the amazing men and women balancing a legal career with the unique demands of the military lifestyle. We also recognize employers who support military spouse attorneys and express our gratitude to those making a difference for military families in the workplace. We are thrilled to announce that Lt. General Flora Darpino will be joining us at the Annual Reception to accept the Homefront to Hired Award on behalf of the Army’s Office of the Judge Advocate General! (Read our previous profile of Lt. General Flora Darpino to learn more about her career and experiences as an active duty judge advocate and military spouse.)

Network: Connect with community leaders and with other MSJDN members.

Awards: We will recognize a MSJDN member with the Professional Excellence Award for significant contributions to the profession. We will also present the Homefront to Hired and Members’ Choice awards to partners and supporters who have demonstrated meaningful support to military spouse attorneys.

Celebrate: Discover the amazing work done by MSJDN members in the office and the community. Celebrate the success of the Foundation’s pro bono program, Justice for Military Families, which matches military families with legal needs to military spouse attorney for legal assistance.

Learn: Find out more about the six state licensing victories in 2014 (grand total: twelve states with accommodations for military spouse attorneys!) and see what’s in store for 2015 and beyond! We will also be reviewing the new and improved MSJDN website, with increased functionality and accessibility, funded with a grant from the Newman’s Own Foundation.
