This year the NCBJ is holding its annual gathering in Chicago. Please join us!

Reason # 1. The NCBJ’s meeting is the best place each year to meet with judges, bankruptcy practitioners, and support professionals - and to get the benefit of the some of the best bankruptcy educators in the country. The ABA, the American College, ABI, AIRA, CLLA, INSOL, IWIRC, and other groups will be putting on their own programs in conjunction with the NCBJ, making for a uniquely rich learning environment.

Reason # 2. The City of Chicago is special. Chicago is my hometown, and fall is its best time of year. You can enjoy some of the country’s most celebrated dining; take in the blues, jazz, an opera or symphony; go on a tour of Chicago’s architecture; shop an amazing variety of retailers; or just walk along the beautiful lake shore. It’s an easy plane ride from just about anywhere, and Chicagoans love visitors.

Reason #3. The special events at this year’s meeting will be fantastic. Among what we've got planned is a performance by some of Second City’s premier members at our final night dinner, memorable late night parties, and a reception by the local insolvency professionals at The Art Institute of Chicago, with its galleries of impressionist paintings open for our private viewing.

So don't miss it! We’ll look forward to seeing you in Chicago on October 8-11.
