Lynn has been a member of the House of Delegates (1990-2000, 2002-2004, 2008-present). Director of the Solo, Small Firm and General Practice Division since 2018 and Alaska state captain of the ABA Day Committee since 2016. Member of the GPSolo Executive Council (1999-2003) and chair of its Book Publications Board (2015-2018) and IP Committee (1996-2004). Member of the ABA Commission on IOLTA (1995-1998). Life fellow of the American Bar Foundation, serving as Alaska state co-chair. President of the Anchorage Bar Association in 1990 and 2016, and member of its Board of Directors.

Reason to serve: “I have been active in the ABA since law school. I’ve always felt that I wanted to give back to the profession for everything that I’ve been able to benefit from. I really believe in the mission of the ABA, and I want to help in any way I can for the organization to fulfill that mission. I feel that in my service on the Board of Governors, I will be able to help contribute to that mission.” 

Plans for term: “I want to help the American Bar Association as it faces some of its challenges in the next few years with regard to membership and in providing services to our members.”

Positive experience with the ABA: “Networking with other attorneys, finding out how they solve issues, what they are confronted with in their practices and also other bar leaders, finding out how they are meeting some of the challenges bar associations are facing right now.”
