Dear MassNAELA member:

Please see the links below and sign up sheet to participate in the 9th annual Elder Law month.  Note, that deference for speakers will be given to those individuals who have joint membership with both the MBA and MassNAELA. However, if there is a shortage of speakers, those members of MassNAELA, who are not members of the MBA will be next in line.Our hope is that for those of you that are speaking that your topic focus on the importance of having a MassNAELA attorney provide advice and complete and submit MassHealth applications (in addition to the basic explanations relative to the need for a power of attorney, health care proxy and will).
